He is a member of the "Caminando hacia el Futuro" communal bank, located in the rural settlement of Jesús del Gran Poder, which is part of Ventanas canton, and is an area where people make their living from agriculture.

He is applying for the loan in order to buy seeds, urea fertilizer, insecticides, herbicide, manure, chickens and a pig. With the help of the loan he will be able to buy the necessary fertilizers for planting, and would improve his financial circumstances. His dream is to buy land. The challenges he faces are crop pests. In his spare time, he likes to drive trucks. "I am very grateful for the previous loan," he says
