Gregorio Mariano's story

Gregorio Mariano is 37 years old. He is married and lives with his wife and their children. They live in the Ventanas canton in the Campo Alegre precinct.

The communal bank San Jacinto is located in the Campo Alegre precinct, near the Guare parish, which is part of the Ventanas canton. This communal bank works with short-cycle agricultural tasks such as planting corn and rice.

Gregoria Mariano works in agriculture. He has been planting corn and rice for 10 years on an inheritance from his parents. He buys his supplies at the Jiménez commercial center in the city of Ventanas, and he sells his products in the same city.

He is applying for the loan to buy seeds, fertilizers and compost to care for his crops. In addition, this will help him increase his family income. His dream is to own a house.

He likes to play sports.
