Jose Vicente's story

Jose is 48 years old and has a son. He lives with his mother and son in the region of Chillanes in the province of Bolivar.
He is a member of the Azanloma community bank, pertaining to the region of Chillanes. His business is agriculture and raising and selling animals. His community is 30 minutes from the office of the Chillanes cooperative.

Hose works in agriculture, for example growing corn, beans, peans and raising animals like cattle, pigs, chickens and guinea pigs. He is requesting the loan to buy livestock. His purchases are made in the city of Chillanes.

His dream is to buy land to cultivate. The challenge he faces is the presence of pests in his plants. In his free time he likes to play sports, go for walks in the town and go to parties in the community.
