José Agnelio's story

José Agnelio P. U. is 32 years old, single, and does not have children. He lives in the town of San Francisco de Rumí, which is 1½ hours from San Miguel Canton in the Province of Bolivar.


José is a member of the Communal Bank “San Francisco de Rumí Pamba”. The group consists of 25 members, most of whom are engaged in agriculture. José has been farming for 18 years as the main source of income for his family. Among the crops grown in the area are potatoes, wheat, and corn. He sells his products at the markets in San Miguel and to merchants who pass through the community.


José is requesting a loan to buy chemical fertilizers for his crops. His goal is to achieve a good harvest and improve his family’s way of life. José challenges include dealing with low market prices during harvest time. In his free time, he enjoys playing volleyball.
