Oscar Fernando's story

Oscar Fernando is 30 years old and single. He has one child and lives in the canton of Ventanas in the province of Los Ríos.

The communal bank is called Ciudadela Los Angeles and is located in the Los Ángeles precinct belonging to the canton Ventanas. This communal bank dedicates itself to short cycle farmwork like planting corn and rice.

Oscar Fernando makes a living as a farmer planting corn and rice. He buys his products in Ventanas and sells them in the market there as well as in the markets of the surrounding cantons.

He is requesting the loan to buy fertilizer, urea, and liquid fertilizer for planting corn and rice. The loan has helped him increase his earnings for his family's consumption and for investing. His dream is to have his own home and car in order to continue working.

He likes playing sports.
