A loan of $1,200 helped to buy seeds and fertilizers for growing corn.


Jose Manuel's story

José Manuel is 39 years old, a widower, and lives with his children (ages 20, 15, 13, 10, and 5) in the neighborhood of San Temistocles in the canton of Ventanas.

The Communal Bank “Narcisa de Jesus” is located in the neighborhood of San Temistocles, which is in the canton of Ventanas. This group consists of short-cycle farmers who grow corn and rice.

José Manuel is a farmer who has been growing corn for six years. He buys his supplies in Ventanas and sells his products at the market in the same place. The loan he is requesting will be used to buy seeds and fertilizers for growing corn. This will be a great help with increasing his income for the consumer needs of his family and for investment. His dream is to buy a solar panel system so that he can build a house.

In his free time, he enjoys relaxing and conversing with his children.
