A loan of $1,500 helped to buy farming supplies.


Jaime Arcenio's story

Jaime is 29 years old and lives in the Ventanas canton of Los Ríos province. Jaime is married and lives with his wife and children, who are aged eight, seven and three years old respectively. Jaime is a member of the "La Paulina" communal bank, located in the Puerto Pechiche parish of the La Paulina rural settlement. La Paulina is part of the Pueblo Viejo canton and here the people make a living in farming. Jaime himself works in farming: he grows corn and raising chickens. This loan will be used to buy farming supplies for sowing crops; Jaime will buy his supplies in Ventanas. Jaime's dream is to buy farming equipment. In his spare time Jaime plays sports.
