A loan of $1,500 helped to buy seeds and fertilizer for planting corn.

Nelson Agustin's story

Nelson is 34 years old. He is in a common law marriage and lives with his wife and children, aged 12, 11, 9, 8 and 4. He likes to go to church.

He lives in the Ventanas canton in the province of los Ríos. He belongs to a solidarity group called La Paulina, located in the parish of Puerto Pechiche in the precinct of La Paulina in the Pueblo Viejo canton. This solidarity group is dedicated to agriculture and the production of livestock.

For some years, Nelson has made a living farming corn and rice. He buys his supplies in Ventana and sells his products at a market there.

He is asking for the loan to buy manure and fertilizer for planting corn. The loan will help him to increase his income. His dream is to buy a piece of land so that he doesn't have to rent one.
