A loan of $600 helped to buy fertilizer, manure and insecticides to prevent pests and disease.


Juan Anesio's story

Juan is 74 years old, unmarried and he doesn’t have children. He lives with his parents in the area of El Jobo which belongs to the canton of Ventanas in the province of Los Ríos.

He belongs to the “Nuevo Jerusalén” communal bank, located in the area El Jobo, belonging to the canton of Ventanas, which is engaged in the work of agriculture and livestock. Juan dedicates himself to agriculture, planting corn and rice.

With the loan he will be able to buy supplies like fertilizer, manure and insecticides to prevent pests and disease. He will make the purchases in the city of Ventanas. The loan will help him to increase his revenue and crops.

His dream is to buy a fumigation bomb to kill pests and to buy an irrigation system for the summer.

In his free time he likes to walk and jog for sport.
