Wilson Raul's story

Wilson Raul is a 33-year-old married man who lives with his wife and 2 children, ages 7 and 10, in Ventanas Provincia de los Rios.

He is a member of the VCR Caminando Hacia el Futuro (Walking Towards the Future) group, which is located in Jesús de gran Poder, a part of the Ventanas canton. He works in short-term agriculture, cultivating corn and rice.

Since Wilson grows corn and rice, he buys products from the Comercial Marlin Market, and he sells his produce both at this market and in Ventanas.

He is requesting the loan to purchase seeds, supplies, liquids, urea and other fertilizers for his crops. This loan will help him out financially so that he can cover his expenses and deal with the challenges of farming, such as pests and plant diseases. His dream is to be able to one day own a home, which he will give to his children.

In his free time, he likes to go out and have fun, as well as spend more time working.
