Mario Enrique's story

Mario Enrique, age 37, is in a common-law marriage and has a one year old child. He lives with his wife and child in the city of Ventanas in the Los Ríos province. He is a member of the Avanza communal bank. The members are farmers, and they all live in the Agua Frías precinct. Virtually all of them were raised in this area. They mainly work in agriculture or with livestock. Mario Enrique grows corn and raises chickens and pigs. He is requesting the loan to buy supplies, urea, liquid weed killer, and fertilizer. With the help of the loan he will be able to continue growing his crops. He will make his purchases in the city of Ventanas. The challenge he faces is the lack of money. His dream is to have his own house and his own fields. In his free time he likes to play sports.
