Luis Bernardo's story

Luis Bernardo is 25 years old and married. He lives with his wife and one-year-old son in the San Temistocles precinct of the Ventanas canton.

The communal bank “Narcisa de Jesus," or “Daffodil of Jesus” is located in the San Temistocles precint, belonging to the Vantanas canton. This communal bank consists of short-cycle farmers who grow corn and rice.

Luis Bernardo is a farmer and has been growing corn for three years. He buys his supplies in Ventanas and then sells his goods at a market in the same area.

Luis Bernardo is requesting the loan to buy seeds and fertilizer for sowing corn. The loan has helped him increase his income, which goes towards his family’s consumptions and towards investment. His dream is to purchase a plot of land and help his son get an education.

He likes to play sports with his son and people from the neighborhood.
