Manuel Francisco's story

His communal bank is called "Yagui Chico" after the community it is in which is 20 minutes from the San Miguel Canton. Here most people are involved in agriculture as a source of income for their families.

Manuel grows crops for a living with corn being his main crop. He buys and sells in San Miguel. He is requesting a loan to work in the fields and buy fertilizers, liquids, urea and seeds.

The loan will allow him to buy the fertilizers without any problem. He has had no difficulties so far. In his free time he enjoys playing volleyball.
