Francisco Agustin's story

Francisco Agustín is 29 years old, in a common-law marriage, and has two children. He lives with his wife and children in Ventanas in Los Ríos Province.

The Dulce Sentimiento communal bank is located in the Caimito II neighborhood in the Puerto Pechiche parish in the Pueblo Viejo canton. This communal bank is comprised of farmers who grow short-cycle crops such as corn, rice, and pigeon peas.

Francisco grows corn, rice, and pigeon peas. His makes his purchases and sales in the Ventanas canton.

He is requesting a loan to buy seeds, urea, herbicides, fertilizers, and weed killer so that he can keep his crops in good condition. This loan will be of great help because he will be able to buy supplies and seeds without any problem.

The challenges he must face on a frequent basis are bad weather and pest infestations. His dream is to buy more land.

In his free time Francisco enjoys playing sports, especially soccer.
