Carlos Eduardo's story

Carlos Eduardo is 25 years old. He is single and has no children. He lives with his mother in the Ventanas Province of Los Rios. He is a member of the Nuevo Horizonte (New Horizon) communal bank, which is located in the Cachely Grande precinct, which belongs to the Ventanas canton. This communal bank is dedicated to short-term agriculture (harvest within 6 months of planting), such as planting corn, rice, and pigeon peas. Carlos Eduardo works in agriculture. He plants corn, and in addition he has animals such as chickens. He makes his purchases and sells his agricultural products in Ventanas. He is applying for the loan to invest in his agricultural work, to plant corn and to buy seeds, compost, fertilizers, liquids for pests, and other items. With the help of the loan, he will improve and increase his plantings. He faces challenges such as plagues of locusts. His dream is to have his own land to work. In his free time he likes to play indoor sports and listen to music.
