Johnny Alfredo's story

Jonny Alfredo, 25, is currently married and has no children; he lives with his wife in Ventanas Canton, Los Ríos Province.

The “La Unión” communal bank is located in Recinto Aguas Frías which belongs to Ventanas Canton. It’s dedicated to short cycle corn, rice and bean farming.

Jonny is a corn and bean farmer and also has animals like cows and chickens. His purchases and sales of farming products take place in Ventanas.

He’s asking for the loan to buy seeds, manure, fertilizer and liquids for infestations. With support from the loan he’ll be able to buy land and manure for the plants. The challenges he faces are infestations, illnesses and weather variations.

His dream is to buy a car and in his free time he enjoys playing ball.
