Jefferson Alexi's story

Jefferson Alexi is 23 years old, single and has two daughters. He lives with his parents and his daughters who are 5 and 2 years old in Ventanas Canton, Los Ríos Province.

The “Jerusalen” communal bank is located in Recinto El Caimito belonging to Puerto Pechiche Parish, Pueblo Viejo Canton. This communal bank carries out short cycle corn, rice and pigeon pea farming.

Jefferson is a corn and rice farmer. His purchases and his sales take place in Ventanas. He requests the loan for his corn crops. With help from the loan he will be able to buy a corn kernel remover. His dream is to have a house of his own. The challenge he’s faced is pest infestations of his crops. In his free time he likes playing Indor soccer.

With help from his previous loan he was able to invest in his corn crops buying farm manure. He is very happy for the help provided.
