Francisco Antonio's story

Francisco is 62 years old. He went to school through 4th grade. He is married and his wife does the domestic work and sells cakes, yucca, etc., on the weekends. He has 5 children who do not depend on him because they are already adults.

He has worked in agriculture and livestock-raising from an early age, work that his whole family has always done.

He needs the loan to buy compost, fertilizers, and poisons in order to plant sweet potatoes, corn, yucca, cucumbers, etc.

His dream is to increase his work to obtain better income to cover the family's needs.
