A loan of $800 helped to buy insecticides, herbicides and organic fertilizers.

Cesar Felix's story

Cesar is 28 years old, married, and has three children. He lives with his wife and children in the city of Ventanas, in los Ríos province.

The members of the San Antonio community bank are all farmers who live in the rural settlement of Aguas Frias. Nearly all of them grew up in this area. Most of them make a living through farming and raising livestock.

Cesar grows corn, soy and rice. He is requesting this loan to buy insecticides, herbicides and organic fertilizers. With the help of this loan, he will be able to buy everything he needs for his crops. He will make his purchases and sales in the city of Ventanas.

Cesar's dream is to buy more land. The challenges that he faces in his business are pests and competition. In his free time he enjoys watching farming programs.
