Rene Leodan's story

René Leodan, 36, is in a civil union but has no children; he lives with his spouse in relatives’ house in Ventanas, Los Ríos Province.

The members of the “27 de Mayo” (May 27th) communal bank work in agriculture and all live in the El Cadial Recinto; they’ve practically been raised there. They work in agriculture and animal husbandry for the most part.

René Leodan works in agriculture growing corn and pigeon peas. He’s requesting the loan to buy urea, insecticide, weed killing liquid and Ranger [brand of herbicide]. With help from the loan he will buy everything he needs for his crops. He makes his purchases and sales every two weeks in Ventanas depending on the crop. His dream is to own a farm and he likes to play sports in his free time.
