Angel Alberto's story

Ángel Alberto is 51 years old, married, and lives with his wife and children (who are 33, 31, 27, 25, 22, 19, 16, 14 and 12 years old) in the canton of Ventanas in Provincia de los Ríos.

The members of the V.R.C NUEVA INSPIRACION, can be found in the Anchoveta Precinct, that belongs to the canton of Pueblo Viejo. This communal Bank works in short-season farming with crops such as corn and rice.

Ángel works in farming to grow corn and rice. He buys his products in Comercial Fertiza and then sells them in the wholesale market for Ventanas and Carlos Castillo.

Ángel is requesting a loan to grow corn and rice, and buy fertilizers and inputs for his crops. The loan would help meet his financial needs. He faces challenges such as diseases in crops such as red ear rot (corn) and burning. His dream is to buy a farm and increase income.

He likes working in the field.
