Temistocles Abdon's story

Temistocles is 36 years old, single, has no children, and lives with his parents in the Canton of Ventanas, in the Province of Los Rios.

The communal bank he belongs to, VRC San Francisco de Sibimbe, is located in the Recinto Sibimbe, also in Ventanas canton. It has 20 members, all of whom work in agriculture on the short cycle, sowing corn and rice.

Temistocles too is dedicated to agriculture, planting corn and rice. He purchases his supplies monthly in Ventanas, and sells his harvests in the local fairs at the same location.

He is requesting a loan to buy seeds, fertilizers, and manure. The loan will help him economically to supply necessities. Temistocles' dream is to increase production in order to have more income.

What he enjoys most is dialogue with his friends.
