Carlos Segundo's story

Carlos Segundo, 43, is single and has no children. He lives with his parents in Ventanas, Los Ríos Province. He’s a member of the “Unidos Venceremos” (We Will Triumph Together) communal bank located in Recinto La América belonging to Ventanas Canton; they work in short cycle corn, rice, beans and pigeon pea farming. Carlos Segundo works in agriculture growing corn. He’s requesting the loan to buy seeds, urea, insecticide, organic manure and liquid weed killer. With help from the loan he will be able to buy fertilizer for the farm. He will make his purchases in Ventanas or in Mocache. His dream is to by a farm and build sheds for the animals. His challenge is plant pests like “ratón” and “langosta.” In his free time he enjoys caring for his crops. He’s very grateful for his previous loan.
