Vicente Rufino's story

Vicente Rufino is 59 years old and married. He has six children, lives with his partner and the children in the Ventanas Province of los Ríos.

He is a member of the 26 DE NOVIEMBRE Communal Bank, which is located on the Achotillo compound. He changed compounds to be closer to the Cooperative. This compound is part of the Ventanas canton, and this “ventanilla” loan is dedicated to work in agriculture and livestock.

Vicente Rufino makes a living from agricultural work like the planting of corn and rice. He also makes a living by raising pigs and chickens. He asks for the loan to buy seeds, fertilizers, insecticides, urea, and weed killer

With the help of the loan he will be able to buy what he needs to keep planting. His dream is to see better days with his crops. In his free time he likes to listen to music and dance.
