Kleber Washington's story

Cléber Washington, 39, is in a common-law relationship and lives with his partner and children. He lives in the rural community of San Vicente Las Lomas in the Ventanas Canton.
The El Recreo communal bank is located in the rural community of San Vicente Las Lomas, which is part of the Ventanas Canton. This area is an agricultural belt for short-cycle crops such as corn, rice, beans and soya.
Cléber is a farmer who has harvested corn and beans for the last 5 years. He buys supplies in Ventanas and sells his produce at the market in Ventanas.
He is requesting a loan to buy what he needs for harvesting corn: fertilizers, insecticide and manure. The loan will help him increase his income to provide for his family. His dream is to provide economic stability to his family and buy land to continue planting.
In his free time he enjoys playing indoor soccer and spending time with his family.
