Segundo Arturo's story

Segundo Arturo is 36 years old. He is married and lives with his wife and children. He lives in the canton of Ventanas in the Los Ríos province.

The communal bank is called Venceremos Unidos and it is located in the Anchoveta precinct on the road to La Templanza precinct in the canton of Ventanas within the Los Ríos province. This communal bank is focused on agricultural works done in the short cycle planting corn and rice.

Segundo Arturo has made a living in agriculture planting corn and rice for three years. He buys his products in Ventanas and makes his sales in the market of the same community as well as in the canton of Pueblo Viejo.

He is requesting this loan to purchase manure, urea and liquid fertilizers to plant corn and rice. The loan has helped him to increase his income both for his family's consumption as well as for reinvestment. His dream is to be able to buy a piece of land so that he can continue producing more. He likes to go out with his friends.
