Carlos Tomas's story

Carlos Tomas, age 20, is in a common-law marriage. He lives with his wife and their son in the Caimito precinct in the Ventanas canton.

The ‘La Verdad Nos Hará Libres’ [The Truth Will Make Us Free] communal bank is located in the Caimito 1 precinct of Ventanas canton. The members of this communal bank work in short-cycle agriculture, growing corn, rice, and vegetables.

Carlos Tomas grows corn and rice. He buys his products in Ventanas and sells them at the same place.

The requested loan is for buying seeds, supplies, fertilizers, urea, and manure for growing corn. The loan will help him to achieve his planting goal, and it will help him buy agricultural products for sowing.

His dream is to be able to buy more land to sow and to improve the income from the sale of his harvest.

In his free time Carlos Tomas likes to play sports and listen to music.
