Santiago Leonardo's story

Santiago Leonardo is 23 years old, he is single, and he lives with his parents in Pueblo Viejo.

He is a member of V.R.C. Unido Somos, which is located in the El Marañón precinct in the canton of Pueblo Viejo, an area dedicated to agriculture - particularly to corn, rice and beans.

He is seeking a credit so that he can plant corn, rice and beans. He needs to buy supplies such as compost and fertilizers for his next harvest. With the money from this loan he will be able to buy what he needs. His challenges are the changing climate and the variation in weather. His dream is to grow his business.

He likes to play sports, especially indoor soccer.
