Víctor Manuel's story

Víctor Manuel is 38 years old. He is single and lives with his child in the Ventanas canton in Provincia de los Ríos. He has one 13-year-old daughter.

The V.R.C. Valle Alto [Valle Alto community bank] is located in the Voluntad de Dios precinct of the Ventanas canton. This community bank is devoted to short cycle maize and rice growing agricultural works.

Victor makes his living in agriculture, growing maize and rice. He buys his products in the Peña Store and sells his products at the Ventanas wholesale market.

He is requesting the loan to plant maize and rice, purchasing supplies and fertilizers for the crops. The support from this loan would help him economically to improve his production and supplement his needs. His dream is to buy a plot of land for his child. He faces the challenges of drought.

He likes to work and play sports.
