Oscar Manuel's story

Oscar Manues is 42 years old, married, and has three children. He lives with his wife and children, ages 8, 7, and 5, in the canton of Ventanas in the Los Rios province.

VCR San Jose is located in the El Rosario area, belonging to the canton of Ventanas. This area is dedicated to farming short-cycle seeds like corn and rice.

Oscar has farmed for 27 years, planting beans, corn, and cacao. He buys and sells in Ventanas.

He requests the loan to invest in short-cycle seeds like corn and beans, and to buy fertilizers.

His dream is to be able to keep increasing productivity. He has not yet had any problems doing so.

In his free time he likes to work on the property.

With the help of the last loan he was able to invest in farming and has sown corn, rice and beans and is improving his finances.

He is very grateful for the previous loan.
