Danny Alfredo's story

Danny Alfredo is 31 and single. He lives with his father in the San Vicente de Las Lomas precinct in the Canton of Ventanas.

The “El Recreo” communal bank is located in the San Vicente de Las Lomas precinct, which is part of the Canton of Ventanas. The members of this communal bank make their livings in short-cycle farming. They grow corn, rice, beans, soy and potatoes, and raise chickens.

Danny makes his living by farming. He has been growing corn and beans for the past three years. He purchases his products in Ventanas and sells them in the Ventanas market.

He requested the loan to purchase agricultural inputs, fertilizers, seeds, and urea for sowing corn. The loan helped him to increase his income for his family. His dream is to be able to reach his goal of purchasing a plot of land so that he can earn more for his family.

In his free time, he likes to play indoor soccer and spend time with his whole family.
