Felix Alfredo's story

Felix Alfredo is 35 years old, married, and has two children. He lives with his wife and children in the canton of Ventanas in Los Ríos Province.

Felix is a member of the October 27th Communal Bank, which is located in the neighborhood of Santa Sofía in the canton of Ventanas. This Communal Bank consists of short cycle farmers who grow corn, rice, and pigeon peas.

Felix is a farmer who grows corn. He buys and sells in Ventanas. Felix is requesting a loan to buy compost, liquid nutrients, urea, and fertilizers for his corn crop. With the support of this loan, he will be able to buy these products without problems since he currently lacks the money. His challenges include dealing with “langosta”, a pest that could ruin the corn.

His dreams are to buy land for growing cacao and to purchase a house. In his free time, Felix enjoys practicing sports.
