Cesar Enrique's story

Cesar Enrique, 54, is married and has 8 children. He lives with his wife and children in Recinto Rancho Grande in Ventanas canton, in Los Rios province.

The communal bank "Bendición de Dios" is located in Recinto Rancho Grande in Puerto Pechiche parish, 45 minutes from the office of Cooperativa San Jose. The group has 11 members.

Cesar Enrique is a farmer who cultivates rice and corn. He is requesting a loan to buy manure, urea, insecticides, herbicides, and Ranger (a pesticide). With the assistance of this loan, he will be able to have a better harvest.

Cesar Enrique makes his purchases every 15 days in the city of Ventanas. His dream is to buy a farm to work, so that he could obtain more income. The challenge he faces is dealing with the pests that damage his crops.

In his free time, he enjoys caring for his crops.

"Cesar is very grateful for the previous loan, because he was able to cultivate his crops and buy fertilizers so that he could keep them in good condition."
