A loan of $1,400 helped to buy seed, supplies, fertilizer, urea and Ranger (insecticide).

Mauricio Michael's story

Mauricio Michael, 21, is single with no children and lives with his parents in Ventanas in Los Ríos Province.

He is a member of the “Luchando por Una Misma Causa” (Striving for the Same Cause) communal bank which is located in Recinto La Primavera belonging to Ventanas Canton. This communal bank is involved in agricultural work related to short cycle corn and rice farming.

Mauricio Michael farms corn and beans. He will use the money to buy seed, supplies, fertilizer, urea and Ranger (insecticide). With the help of the loan he will be able to improve his crops. He’ll make his purchases in Ventanas. His dream is to remodel his house and install an irrigation system for the crops.

The challenges he faces are the locust plague. In his free time he likes to chat online.
