Miguel Antonio's story

Miguel is 36 years of age and is in a committed relationship with three children. He lives with his partner and children in the rural settlement of Desvió De Los Amarillo belonging to the Ventanas hamlet in the province of Los Ríos. He belongs to the communal bank "Pequeños Agricultures" [Small Farmers] located in the rural settlement of Desvió De Los Amarillo belonging to the Ventanas hamlet in the province of Los Ríos and which devotes itself to crop farming and animal husbandry.

Miguel earns a living in farming and plants corn and raises farm animals such as chickens and pigs. With the loan he will be able to purchase supplies such as fertilizer, compost, and insecticides to prevent plant infestation and disease, along with commercial feed. He makes his purchases in the city of Ventanas.

His dream is to purchase land so he may continue planting crops, and a car. He thoroughly enjoys the holidays to celebrate the settlement's patron saint.
