Felix Alfredo's story

Felix is 37 years old and married with two children. He lives with his wife and children in the Cantón Ventanas, in the province of Los Ríos.

He is a member of the communal bank "October 27th," which is located in the Santa Sofía neighborhood, part of Cantón Ventanas. This group works in agriculture, planting crops with short growing seasons: corn, rice, and beans.

Felix works in agriculture, planting corn, and he makes his purchases and sales in Ventanas.

He is requesting this loan to purchase compost, liquid nutrients, urea, and fertilizers for the corn. With the support of the loan, he will be able to purchase the products with no problem and won't be short of money. The challenges that he faces are diseases in the crops.

His dream is to be able to purchase land to cultivate cocoa and to buy a house. In his free time he likes to play sports.
