A loan of $800 helped to buy urea, liquid weed killer, insecticide, a varietal of corn, and vaccines for his chickens.


Willaim Alcivar's story

Alcivar is 35 years old, lives with his long-term partner, has two children, and lives in the city of Ventanas in the Los Ríos Province.

The 25 de Febrero Communal Bank is located in the El Guabito Precinct of the parish of Zapotal, in Ventanas Canton. He works in farming for a living.

Alcivar grows corn, cacao, oranges, and bananas for a living. He also raises livestock, such as chickens. He is asking for this loan to buy urea, liquid weed killer, insecticide, a varietal of corn, and vaccines for his chickens.

With the help of the loan he will be able to buy the farming supplies he needs to take good care of his crops. He makes his purchases monthly in Ventanas. His dream is to keep working a lot to increase his yield and get his family ahead.

The challenges he faces are with work and family, as he wants his yield to be better every day. In his free time he likes to play indoor soccer.
