Edgar Jeovanny's story

Edgar Jeovanny, 29, is single and lives with his mother in the Ventanas Canton in the province of Los Ríos.

The communal bank JESUS NOS AMA is located in the community of Los Amarillos which belongs to the Ventanas Canton. This group is involved in growing short-cycle crops such as corn, rice and Gandul beans.

Edgar also grows corn, rice and Gandul beans. He buys his supplies in Agroquímicos El Copa and sells his produce at the wholesale market in Ventanas.

He is requesting a loan to buy supplies and fertilizer for his rice and corn crops. The loan will help cover his economic needs and improve his farm activities. He is up against challenges such as crop plagues (red ribbon in corn). His dream is to buy a farm one day.

He enjoys sports.
