Wilton Cristobal's story

Wilton Cristóbal, 24, is married living with his wife and children in Ventanas, Los Ríos Province. He’s a member of the “Unidos Venceremos” (We Will Triumph Together) communal bank located in Recinto La América belonging to Ventanas Canton; they work in agriculture in short-cycle corn, rice, broad bean and pigeon peas.

Wilton Cristóbal works in agriculture growing corn and rice. He requests a loan to buy seeds, urea, insecticide, organic manure and liquid weed killer. With help from the loan he will be able to buy fertilizer problem-free. He will make his purchases in Ventanas or in Mocache.

His dream is to buy a car and a farm. The challenge he faces is plant infestations like “langosta” and “orosco.” In his free time he enjoys caring for the crops. He thanks God and people who have helped him with the previous loan because he was able to invest in the crops.
