Freddy Wilmer's story

Freddy Wilmer, age 23, is in a common-law marriage and does not have children. He lives in the Ventanas province in Los Ríos. He is a member of the Avanza communal bank. The members are farmers, and all of them live in the Aqua Frías precint. Virtually all of them were raised in this area. For the most part, they work in agriculture or with livestock. Freddy Wilmer grows corn, cacao, and rice. He is requesting the loan to buy seeds, insecticides, urea, liquid weed killer, and cacao plants. With the help of the loan he will be able to buy fertilizers and the plants for sowing. He will make his purchases and his sales in the city of Ventanas in the Los Ríos province. The challenges he faces are pest infestations and bad weather. His dream is to grow a lot, and to invest in agriculture. In his free time he likes to play sports.
