Leonardo Robinson's story

Leonardo Robinson is 40 years old and has a common-law wife. They live with their two children in Ventanas in the province of Los Ríos. He is a member of the Luchando group which is located in the community of La Primavera, a part of the Ventanas canton. The branch works with farmers who grow short-cycle crops like corn and rice.

Leonardo Robinson grows corn and beans. He is seeking a loan to buy seeds, supplies, fertilizer, and urea. The money will help him increase production and have quality crops.

He will sell the crops in Ventanas. His dream is to renovate his house. His biggest challenge is overcoming the diseases that attack the crops. In his free time he likes to play indoor sports.
