A loan of $300 helped to buy fertilizers, manure, and insecticides to avoid pests and diseases.


Carlos Alberto's story

Carlos is 25 years old. He is single with no children. He lives with his parents and his two siblings who are 15 and 12 years old. They live in the community of Terrenal, part of the Pueblo Viejo canton in the Los Rios province.

Carlos belongs to the Terrenal communal bank, which is located in Terrenal, part of the Pueblo Viejo canton. It focuses on agricultural work and raising livestock.

Carlos works in agriculture, sowing corn and rice. With this loan, he will be able to buy supplies such as fertilizers, manure, and insecticides to avoid pests and diseases. He will make his purchases in the cities of Pueblo Viejo and Ventanas.

Carlos’s dream is to have money to start his own business such as a grocery store, since there are none where he lives. In his free time, Carlos plays volleyball.
