Christian Israel
Christian Israel is 24 years old, single, and lives with his family and his two-year-old son in Ventanas in Los Ríos Province.

The Communal Bank “Luchar Para Triunfar” (Fight to Win) is located in the La Poza section of the town called “10 de Noviembre” (November 10th) in the canton of Ventanas. The members of this Communal Bank engage in various businesses ranging from agriculture to retail.

Christian is a farmer who grows corn, rice, and cacao. The loan he is requesting will be used to buy seeds, compost, fertilizers, and urea so that he can increase his output.

This loan will be a great help since he can buy the compost for maintaining good conditions for his crops. The challenges he faces on a frequent basis are the competition and pests. Christian dreams of supporting his family financially by providing food and purchasing a car for transporting and selling his products.

In his free time Christian enjoys practicing sports, especially indoor soccer.

About Cooperativa San Jose

This loan is administered by Cooperativa San Jose, a 45,000-member credit union located high in the Andes Mountains of Ecuador’s poorest province, Bolivar. They offer a unique loan called “Ventanillas Rurales” [Window to the Countryside], which uses a group guarantee but is an individual loan with a savings component, mostly to rural borrowers. Due to low savings rates and a history of macroeconomic instability, many traditional loans in Ecuador demand interest rates that are prohibitively high for some borrowers. There is also a high incidence of extortionist black-market lending in Ecuador. CSJ helps mitigate these problems by providing a less onerous and more appropriate option. Join CSJ’s Lending Team!
