A loan of $800 helped agricultural supplies and fertilizers.


Christian Roberto's story

Christian Roberto V. C. is 20 years old. He is single and lives with his brother and his uncle, in the Ventanas region, Province of Los Ríos. He has no children.

The members of the La Union rural communal bank are all based in the Aguas Frías area of Ventanas. The group is dedicated to agricultural work, in a planting cycle of maize, rice and beans. This activity takes a lot of time.

Christian has been dedicated to agriculture - especially the cultivation of maize, rice and beans - for 3 years. He buys his supplies in Ventanas and sells his produce at the market in the same area. He is seeking a loan to buy agricultural supplies and fertilizers for his crops. The loan should help him financially, to stock up on these necessities. He faces difficulties such as crop diseases and the variability of the climate. His dream is to have his own house. He likes to play sport.
