Pedro Jorge's story

Pedro Jorge is 42 years old. From a common-law marriage he has two children. He lives with his partner and the children in the city of Ventanas, Rios Province.

He is a member of VRC Unidos Venceremos. It is located in the Precinct La América, belonging to the Ventanas Canton. Ventanilla specializes in short-cycle agriculture, planting corn, rice, beans, and gandul beans.

Pedro Jorge works in agriculture in the cultivation of corn. He is applying for the loan to buy urea, insecticides, organic fertilizers, and liquid weed-killer. With the help of the loan, he will be able to buy fertilizers for agriculture. He will purchase the products in Ventanas or in Mocache.

The dream is to buy a farm. The challenges that he faces are pests in the crops. In his free time, he likes to take care of the crops.

He is very thankful for the previous loan.
