Rolando Patricio's story

Rolando Patricio C. G. is 35 years old. He is single and lives with his mother and father in the Bolivar province. He has no children. The members of V.R. C CALZADO SOLIDARIO live nearby in the town of el Calzado, Cantón San Miguel; these 12 farmers grow corn, potatoes, beans and raise domestic animals. Jorge makes his living from agriculture and grows corn, potatoes, beans and has farm animals as well. He buys products in the market of San Miguel each week and brings his products for sale on Thursdays in the same market. Jorge requests a loan in order to buy crop seed and feed for farm animals. This loan will help him economically to meet expenses, and to confront difficulties such as insects, disease and climate unpredictability. He hopes to be able to build his house. He likes to play sports.
