Jorge Luis's story

Jorge, 22, is single and has no children. He lives with his parents in the Terrenal district of Pueblo Viejo Canton, Los Ríos Province. He belongs to the Terrenal communal bank located in the Terrenal district of Pueblo Viejo Canton, where the people make a living in agriculture and livestock.

Jorge makes a living in agriculture growing corn. He's starting to work on a piece of land his father gave him for planting. With the loan he'll be able to buy supplies such as fertilizer, manure, and insecticide to avoid pests and diseases. He makes his purchases in the city of Pueblo Viejo.

His dream is to buy agricultural machinery so there's less work. In his free time he likes to go out with his friends to play soccer.
