Gregorio Antonio's story

GREGORIO ANTONIO is 32 years old. He has recently entered into a common-law marriage. He lives with his wife in Ventanas, in Los Ríos province.

He is a member of the communal bank "Luchando por una misma Causa" ["Fighting for a Common Cause"], which is located in the area of Primavera, which belongs to the canton of Ventanas. The members of this communal bank work in agriculture, planting corn and rice on a short-cycle basis.

Gregorio Antonio works growing corn and beans. He will use the funds to buy seeds and supplies. With the funds from the loan he will be able to fence in his crops.

He makes his purchases and sales in the city of Ventanas. His dream is to keep working in order to have income. The challenges he confronts are weeds such as paja de burro and langosta. In his free time, he likes to play indoor soccer and volleyball.
