Henry Francisco's story

Henry Franciso, 22, is single and has no children. He lives in a house with his grandparents in Ventanas in the province of Los Ríos.

He's a member of 26 de Noviembre Communal Bank. He moved from the Las Blancas precinct to the Achotillo precinct because it's closer to the cooperative. The precinct is in Ventanas Canton. This bank works in livestock and agriculture.

Henry Francisco makes a living growing corn, rice, and beans. He's requesting the loan to buy urea, seeds, Ranger [herbicide], and liquid weedkiller. He makes his sales in Ventanas. With the help of the loan he'll be able to buy the supplies.

His dream is to be able to have a house, a family, and a vehicle. The challenge he faces is to always work modestly and responsibly. In his free time he likes to play soccer and get together with the community.
