Gustavo Antonio's story

Gustavo, 63, has been cultivating the soil for 30 years. He works hard to grow corn and beans in order to put food on the table every day. He is known for being a hard-working, honest, responsible man who lives with his family, comprised of his wife and four children. He and his wife work hard to support the family and given them better conditions than what they had. Thanks to his knowledge of agriculture he has been able to maintain his household, since it is his only source of income.

With a fervent desire to get ahead, Gustavo came to the institution to request a loan for the planting season that has just begun. He needs to begin planting as soon as possible. He requires the loan to buy farm supplies such as seeds, fertilizers, insecticides, etc. He has faith in God and in his own work that he will obtain an abundant harvest in order to improve his and his family's quality of life.
