A loan helped to purchase bananas.


Antonio's story

Antonio is a man who works from dawn to dusk to generate the daily sustenance for his family, which is made up of 9 children. Manuel is 47 years old.

He works buying and selling bananas. He inherited this work from his parents since they did the same. He does this work in the town where he lives. He works buying and selling bananas because it is very profitable and it helps him to generate the economic resources to sustain his family. He has been doing this work for 5 years, which he does with the help of his children.

The use that he will give to the loan he requests is the purchase of bananas by the quintal [approximately 100 pounds].

One of his principle desires or dreams is that in the future his earnings will help him to expand his business and seek more markets and work in exporting bananas.
