Jairon Aurelio's story

Jairon Aurelio is 33 years old, is in a common law marriage, and has three children. He lives with his wife and children, ages 8, 5, and six months, in the Ventanas settlement of Los Rios. The San Nicloas communal bank is located in Recinto San Nicolás, Puerto Pechiche parrish, part of the Puerto Viejo settlement. The people here farm and raise short cycle corn. Jairon Aurelio is a farmer and raises corn, rice, pigs and chickens. He makes his purchases in Ventanas and is asking for this loan to buy seeds and farming supplies such as urea, week killer, and fertilizer to keep his crops in good shape so that he can sell them at good prices. This loan will be very helpful because he will be able to expand his farming by planting corn. The challenges he faces include competition, crop disease, and blights. His dream is to continue prospering, thanks to his work. He likes to travel by motorcycle and play sports in his spare time.
