Segundo Manuel's story

Segundo Manuel is 41 years old. He is married, and he lives with his wife and their children. They have six children, and they are all minors. He lives in the Ventanas Cantón in the Los Ríos province.

The members of the Señor de la Salud Communal Bank live in the Soloma precinct in the Echeandia Canton. This communal bank grows short cycle corn and rice.

Segundo grows corn and rice. He buys supplies in Ventanas and sells his products at the daily markets, especially the Sunday market.

He is requesting the loan to buy seeds, fertilizers, and manure. The support of the loan will help him financially so that he will have his necessities. He faces challenges like insect infestations, crop diseases, and climate changes.

His dream is to buy a piece of land to continue working.

He likes to dance at the precinct festivals.
