A loan of $800 helped to purchase seeds, fertilizer, and organic fertilizer.


Darwin Manuel's story

Manuel is 23 years old, and he is single. He lives with his mother in the canton of Ventanas, within the Los Ríos Province. He is a member of the Virgen de Guadalupe group, which is located in the parish of Puerto Pechiche that belongs to the canton of Pueblo Viejo.

Manuel works selling corn and rice, and he raises chickens. He is seeking a loan to purchase seeds, fertilizer, and organic fertilizer. He will make his purchases in Montenegro.

His dream is to improve his crop and raise his income level; and the challenge he faces is to combat diseases and infestations, such as locusts.

In his free time he likes to be with his family, and share meals together with them.
