Luis Heriberto's story

Luis, 25, is single and does not have children. He lives in Ventanas Canton, Los Ríos Province.

He’s a member of the “Venceremos Unidos” (We Will Triumph Together) communal bank located in Recinto Anchoveta on the way to Recinto La Templanza that belongs to Pueblo Viejo Canton. This communal bank is involved with agricultural activities related to short cycle corn and rice crops.

Luis Heriberto grows corn and rice. He buys his products in Ventanas and sells them in a market there and in Pueblo Viejo Canton. He’s asking for the loan to buy manure, urea and liquid fertilizer for the crops. The loan has helped him to increase his income for his family’s consumption and to invest. His dream is to have money to go on a trip abroad. He likes watching television shows about traditions in other countries.
