Jose Abrahan
José is a young man, 19 years old, who is very enterprising and has many goals that he wants to accomplish. In the future, he dreams of having his own farm with several professionally-cared-for crops to distribute to large buyers. José is single. He finished high school and he lives with his parents José and Elvira in Los Bancos, a canton in the province of Pichincha, one of the largest provinces in the Republic of Ecuador. This canton is located a few kilometers from the city of Quito and has a diversity of forests. In addition, its neighborhoods are populated with friendly people and typical customs of the city where there are also several small businesses established, run by the entrepreneurs who fight each day to make their dreams a reality. Other outstanding activities are agriculture and livestock farming, producing abundant crops that are then sold to distribute around to many provinces. It also has several tourist attractions like waterfalls, rivers, trails and spas where the tourist is attracted by the adventure sports that are sold there with guaranteed security.

José has worked raising cattle for milk production for 2 years, an activity that he inherited from his parents who, since he was a child, taught him the labors of cleanliness, care, feeding and milking of the cows. Now it is an activity that he carries out full time, nine hours each day to which he puts a lot of effort and dedication in order to deliver a healthy product to his customers. This young entrepreneur is requesting a loan that he will use to buy a pair of young cows to produce more liters of milk a day and thus he will be able to increase his milk sales, which will generate for him a better profit with which he will be able to help his parents with the household expenses and also be able to continue preparing for when he has his own farm to be able to run it professionally. José encourages everyone that can hear about his story through Kiva to contribute with a small grain of sand so that his project can be a reality. He is grateful to Fundación Alternativa who, in the pursuit of the mission to end poverty in Ecuador, provides so much support to the entrepreneurs and small-businesspeople of the rural areas, with training, personalized counseling and that familial bond that leads to attending to a customer not only with financial services but also non-financial services that ensure the well-being of the customer and their family.

José es un joven de 19 años, emprendedor y con muchas metas para cumplir, pues en el futuro, él sueña con tener su propia finca con varios cultivos cuidados profesionalmente para distribuir a grandes compradores. José es soltero, terminó la secundaria y vive con sus padres José y Elvira en Los Bancos un cantón de la Provincia de Pichincha, una de las provincias más grandes en la República del Ecuador. Este cantón se encuentra a pocos kilómetros de la ciudad de Quito, y tiene diversidad de bosques, además sus barrios están poblados con gente amable y costumbres propias de esta ciudad en donde también se encuentran establecidas varias microempresas administradas por los emprendedores que luchan por hacer realidad sus sueños cada día. Otras de las actividades sobresalientes son la agricultura y la ganadería, produciendo abundantes cultivos que luego son comercializados para distribuirse hacia muchas provincias. También posee varios atractivos turísticos como cascadas, ríos, senderos, balnearios en donde el turista es atraído por los deportes de aventura que se venden allí con seguridad garantizada.
José se dedica a la crianza de ganado vacuno para la producción de leche desde hace 2 años, actividad que heredó de sus padres que desde niño le enseñaron las labores de aseo, cuidado, alimentación y ordeño de las vacas. Ahora es una actividad que la realiza a tiempo completo; nueve horas cada día a las cuales pone mucho esfuerzo y dedicación para entregar a sus clientes un producto saludable. Este joven emprendedor está solicitando un préstamo que lo utilizará a comprar un par de vacas jóvenes para producir más litros de leche diarios y así poder incrementar sus ventas de leche, lo cual le generará una mejor utilidad con la cual podrá ayudar a sus padres con los gastos del hogar y además poder seguir preparándose para cuando tenga su finca poder administrarla profesionalmente. José motiva a todas las personas que a través de Kiva pueden conocer su historia, aporten con un granito de arena para que su proyecto sea una realidad y agradece a Fundación Alternativa quienes en la búsqueda de la misión de terminar con la pobreza en el Ecuador, brindan tanto apoyo a los emprendedores y microempresarios del sector rural, con capacitación, asesoría personalizada y ese vínculo familiar que lleva a atender al cliente no solo con servicios financieros sino también servicios no financieros que velen por el bienestar del cliente y su familia.
