A loan of $1,000 helped to buy urea, seeds, herbicides and a balanced diet for fattening and raising chickens and pigs.


Fidel Manuel's story

Fidel is 48 years old, is married, and lives with his wife and their three children. He lives in the Ventanas canton in the Los Ríos province. He is a member of the '10 de Septiembre' loan group located in Lechugalito, a precinct that belongs to the Ventanas canton in the Los Ríos province.

Fidel works in agriculture, planting corn, rice and passion fruit, and raising chickens and pigs to increase his family's budget. The crop that excels the most is corn. He sells the products in the market in Ventanas.

Fidel is asking for the loan for agriculture, to buy urea, seeds, herbicides and a balanced diet for fattening and raising chickens and pigs.

His dream is to have greater earnings in order to give his children what they need for their education. In his free time he likes to play sports and to travel.
