Joseph Fabricio's story

Joseph Fabricio, 24, is married living with his wife and son in Ventanas Canton, Los Ríos Province. This communal bank is called “San Francisco de Sibimbe” and it’s located in Recinto Sibimbe belonging to Ventanas Canton. It has 20 members who work in short cycle corn and rice farming.

Joseph Fabricio grows corn, rice and soya and also raises chickens and ducks. His purchases and his sales take place every two weeks in Ventanas.
He is requesting the loan to buy seeds, urea, insecticide, fertilizer and manure. With support from the loan he will be able to work freely with capital of his own. His dream is to have a business of his own and to get ahead with his wife and children. In his free time he likes going out into the countryside with his family.
