Francisco Agustin's story

Francisco Agustín is 28 years old, in a common-law relationship, and has two children. He lives with his wife and children (ages 7 and 5 months) in Ventanas in Los Ríos Province.

The Communal Bank “Dulce Sentimiento” (Sweet Feeling) is located in the Caimito II neighborhood in the parish of Puerto Pechiche in the canton of Pueblo Viejo. This Communal Bank consists of farmers who grow short-cycle crops such as corn, rice, and pigeon peas.

Francisco engages in farming by growing corn, rice, and pigeon peas. His purchases and sales are conducted in the canton of Ventanas. He is requesting a loan to buy seeds and farming supplies such as urea, herbicide, fertilizers, and weed killer so that he can keep his crops in good condition. This loan will be of great help because he can buy supplies and seeds without any problem.

The challenges he must face on a frequent basis include the competition and the pests. His dream is to continue working so that he can acquire another loan that is a larger amount in order to buy more land.

In his free time Francisco enjoys practicing sports, especially soccer.
