Leibnitz Marcelo's story

Leibnitz Marcelo is 36 years old, married, and lives with his wife and two daughters (ages 11 and 4) 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.

Marcelo is a farmer who has been growing corn for eight 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 and rice. 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 plot of land so that he can continue planting.

In his free time, he enjoys playing sports.
