Juan Diego
The 'La Amistad' community bank meet every two weeks in the beautiful city of Calceta. This city is known as 'Calceta la sin par' (Calceta, the city with no equal) owing to the beauty of its women and because, so far as its residents are concerned, there is no more beautiful city in the world.

Here we meet 34-year-old Juan. He is separated and has an 11-year-old son from his relationship. His son attends school. Juan and his son live in his parents' house.

In order to make a living, Juan sells all kinds of clothing and also farms. He grows cacao and corn. He grows all year round as he has water pumps which enable him to irrigate his crops year round. As regards his clothing business, he makes his sales door to door and also to order. He goes out to sell his products and collect payment on weekends as he is working with his crops during the rest of the week. He delivers his merchandise on credit and collects payment weekly. He buys his merchandise in Guayaquil and Huaquillas whenever he needs to. He has been in this business for more than six years and it is doing very well.

Juan will use this loan to buy all kinds of clothing and fertilizers for his crops. This is his second loan cycle as a member of his community bank and he enjoys it because of the opportunity that they have given him to receive loans.

Juan's dreams are to own a car which he can use for his work and to enjoy good production.
