Angel Marcial's story

37-year old Angel Marcial is single, lives with his parents, and doesn’t have any children. He lives in Ventanas canton, in Los Ríos province.

His community bank is called VRC SAN FRANCISCO DE SIBIMBE and is located in Recinto Sibimbe in Ventanas canton. There are 20 members who work in agriculture growing corn and rice.

Angel Marcial also grows corn and rice. He buys his supplies in Ventanas each month and sells his produce in the local market. He is seeking a loan to buy seeds, fertilizer, and manure. The loan will provide him with the financial support to obtain what he needs. He sometimes faces problems such as insects that attack his crops.

Angel’s dream is to have more money and to keep on working. He loves dancing.
