Miguel Angel's story

Miguel Angel is 57 years old, married, and lives with his wife and two children. He lives in Montalvo, Province of Los Ríos.

The communal bank is called PITA and is located in Recinto San Pablo de Pita belonging to the Caluma Canton 45 minutes away from Montalvo. This bank devotes itself to agricultural labors, tending to crops of oranges, bananas, orito (wild bananas), cocoa and coffee. Miguel devotes himself to tending crops of cocoa, bananas, and coffee since these are long-cycle products. He makes his purchases at Comercial San Rafael in Caluma and sells in Montalvo.

He is requesting the loan for the purchase of supplies such as fertilizer, urea, fungicides and Ranger for weeds, brush and crop diseases. The loans have helped him improve the quality of his product and avoid losses of the crops.

Miguel’s dream is to purchase some land in order to continue growing crops. He likes to play sports with his friends in the neighborhood.
