A loan of $1,000 helped to buy yucca seed and agricultural supplies.

Cesar's story

Sr. Cesar, born 21 years ago in the town of El Torno, is unmarried. He will use the loan to plant yucca (manioc) and prepare the land for cultivation. Currently he lives in his father’s home in El Torno. With the loan he will go to his plot located in the Alto Villa Barrientos community, 20 km. from Santa Rosa, to work the land and live from selling his crops. As a producer, he sells directly to the consumer. With his earnings he wants to buy a motorcycle so that, after meeting his obligations, he can get around from one place to another.

In his spare time, Cesar plays soccer and is a fan of Blooming, a team from the city of Santa Cruz. He is happy and grateful because he did very well with the previous loan and made a good profit. He will continue saving his money so that he can buy a motorcycle, one of his greatest desires.
