A loan of $500 helped to buy fertilizers.

Angel Alipio's story

Ángel, age 50, is married and has one child. He lives with his wife in the Ventanas canton in the Los Ríos province.

The Palmasola communal bank is located in the Palmasola precinct in the Ricaurte parish, Urdaneta canton. The members do agricultural work and work with livestock.

Ángel is a farmer, and he grows corn and rice. He is requesting the loan to buy fertilizers. With the support of the loan he will be able to buy the fertilizers for a lower price because it will be a cash purchase. He makes his purchases in Ventanas every week.

His dream is to buy some land. His challenge is climate changes. He likes to spend his free time with his family.
