Lorenzo Urbano's story

Lorenzo Urbano is 54 years old and married with one son. He lives with his wife and son in the Ventanas province of Los Ríos.

The communal bank “La Verdad Nos Hará Libres” (The Truth Will Set Us Free) is located in the precinct of Caimito 1, belonging to the Canton of Ventanas. This communal bank is dedicated to short-cycle agricultural work sowing corn and rice.

Lorenzo Urbano works in agriculture, growing corn and rice. He buys his products in Ventanas and sells them in the same place.

The requested loan is for the purchase of supplies, such as urea, fertilizer, and liquid for weeds for growing corn and rice. The loan has helped him to buy supplies and increase his earnings for the well-being of his family.

His dream is to be able to buy land and a car. The obstacles that he confronts are pests in the fields. In his free time, he likes to read the Bible and rest.
