Alex Alfonso's story

Alex Alfonso, 20, is single and has no children. He lives with his parents in Los Rios province.

The V.R.C. SAN JOSE community bank is located near EL ROSARIO in the canton of Ventanas. The group funds agricultural projects and its members grow maize, rice and beans.

Alex Alfonso grows maize, rice and beans. He buys supplies in Comercial Guzman in Ventanas and sells his crop at the wholesale market in Ventanas.

He is applying for a loan to fund his next plantings of maize, rice and beans. He will buy the seeds and manure that he needs for the crops. By supporting this loan, you will be helping him buy the supplies he needs. His biggest challenge are plant diseases and insects that can destroy his crop. His greatest wish is to buy a farm so that he can continue farming and helping his parents.

He likes sports and working on the land.
