Roberto Timoteo's story

Roberto Timoteo is 38, single, and has no children. He lives with his parents in the city of Ventanas in Los Rios province.

The members of the "27 de mayo" communal bank work in agriculture, and all live near the rural settlement of Cadial. Almost all have been brought up in that area, mostly engaging in farming and livestock-raising.

Roberto Timoteo farms, growing corn and rice. He also raises ducks and pigs. He is applying for the loan so that he can buy urea, insecticides, weedkiller herbicide and a pig. With the help of the loan, he will be able to buy what he needs for planting.

He makes his purchases and carries out his sales in Ventanas every six months, depending on the planting.

His dream is to increase his crops and help his family. In his free time, he likes to play sports; especially volleyball.
