Manuel Agustín's story

Manuel Agustín B. S. is 19 years old, single, and lives with his parents in the canton of Ventanas in Ríos province. He does not have any children. The members of the "Jerusalen" rural communal bank are based in the precinct of Caimito, which belongs to the parish of Puerto Pechiche and canton of Pueblo Viejo. The members of this communal bank work in short-cycle agriculture and grow corn, rice, and pigeon peas. Collectively, they have been doing this work for a long time. Manuel Agustín plants corn, rice, and pigeon peas. He buys products at the García and López markets and sells his produce at the Vaca market. He is requesting this loan to buy agricultural supplies and fertilizers for cultivating corn, rice, and pigeon peas. With the economic support provided by this loan, he will be better able to meet his needs. He faces challenges like insect plagues and crop illnesses, as well as variations in the climate. His dream is to buy a motorcycle. Manuel Agustín enjoys playing sports.
