Carlos Alberto's story

Carlos is thirty-two years old and lives in a common-law relationship. He has no children. He lives with his partner in the Ventanas Canton, in the province of Los Ríos. He is a member of the San Juan Communal Bank, which is located in the San Francisco area of the parish of San Juan; the members work in agricultural jobs. Carlos makes a living in agriculture, growing rice and corn. He is requesting a loan in order to invest in agriculture by buying seeds, fertilizers, agricultural manure, and fungicides for the care of his crops. The challenges he frequently faces are from competition and pests. His dream is to have money in order to go on a trip. In his free time he likes to play sports with his friends in the neighborhood.
