Publio Beltran's story

Publio Beltrán is 59 years old and lives with his common-law wife and 5 children in the Ventanas canton in the province of los Ríos.

The DULCE SENTIMIENTO communal bank is found in Recinto Caimito II, in the parish of Puerto Pechiche which belongs to the Pueblo Viejo canton. This bank focuses on short-cycle agriculture growing corn, rice, and pigeon peas.

Publio Beltrán works in agriculture growing corn, rice, and pigeon peas. He buys and sells in the Ventanas canton. He is asking for this loan so he can buy seeds, urea, fertilizer and weed killer.

The loan will be a very great help as he will be able to purchase these without any problems.

The challenges he faces most frequently are competition and pests. His dream is to improve his income to help his family's well-being. In his spare time he likes to play sports.
