Juan's story

Juan S. M. is a 73 year-old man who is known as a very honest and hard-working person.

He is from Ostional de Guanacaste, one of the most beautiful regions of the country which is known for being a national wildlife refuge and also for its beautiful beaches.

Juan has been farming since he was a child, specifically sowing all types of vegetables and basic grains such as rice and beans. It seems that the end of the year will bring with it good weather for the harvest. For this reason, he needs a loan of 500,000 colones in order to prepare his land and purchase tools, seeds and organic fertilizer for his crops. This will allow him to make a good income for the end of the year and, above all, to continue his production.
