A loan of $250 helped to plant basic grains, because he wants to plant 4,275 square metres of corn.

Alfredo Antonio's story

Alfredo is 34 years old. He has a partner and three children, of whom only two are at school because the third one is still too small.

Alfredo works in farming, because from this he can get everything his family needs. He plants basic grains like corn, sorghum, beans, and sesame. He has worked in farming since he was very small.

Alfredo needs a loan for the sowing of basic grains, because he wants to plant 4,375 square metres of corn. He also needs a small loan to be able to properly maintain his crop, and by this to get a good harvest and to have the income to fulfill the needs of himself and his family.

For the future, Alfredo wants to provide his three children with a good education, so that they will be good people in society and can use what they learnt and provide services or help people in need.
