A loan of $1,500 helped to sow rice.


Vicente's story

Vicente is 45 years and has 5 children, ages 18, 15, 12, 8 and 2. He works in agriculture, planting a variety of vegetables like potatoes, yuca and corn in his plot, which is located in the community of Nuevo Suruto. This loan is his first within the institution. Vicente will use this loan to sow rice and land preparation. He is requesting this loan to obtain resources for planting and to be able to survive.

Vicente faces challenges in his business like the harshness of the climate that at times ruins his sowing, and will use the profits to improve the quality of life of he and his family. Since he takes care of all of the home expenses, he is a responsible and hardworking person. He is grateful to the institution for the support offered.
