Jorge Wilson's story

Jorge Wilson is 46. He lives in a common law marriage and has 2 children, who are 14 and 15. He lives with his wife and kids in San Joaquín in the Montalvo canton in the Los Ríos province. The San Joaquín communal bank is located 15 minutes from the Montalvo office. It is made up of 12 members. Jorge Wilson makes a living through agriculture and grows rice, soy, and corn. With this money, he also wants to rent more land with the goal of obtaining more profits from his products. He is requesting the loan to buy fertilizers, insecticides, herbicides, and liquids to guarantee his harvest. He makes his purchases and sales in Montalvo on a weekly basis. His dream is to buy his own land, to produce more, and to build his own home. The challenges he faces are losing his crops, especially due to pests or the constant rainy season.
