Wellington Oswaldo's story

Wellington Oswaldo is 40 years old and married. He has three children, ages 17, 15, and 6. He lives with his wife and the children in the Rancho Grande precinct of Ventanas Canton. Bendición de Dios Communal Bank is located in the Rancho Grande precinct of the parish of Puerto Pechiche, 45 minutes from our office. It is made up of 11 members. Wellington Oswaldo works in agriculture growing corn. He is requesting the loan to buy fertilizer, organic manure, liquid herbicide for the weeds, urea, and Ranger-brand herbicide, and to pay the daily wages of the workers. With the help of the loan he will be able to buy the insecticide and pay the daily wage to the workers. He makes his purchases and sales weekly in Ventanas. His dream is to buy himself a plot of land and be able to vary his crops. The challenges he faces are the pests, such as the budworm, and the bad weather. In his free time he likes to fish.
