Juan Paudillo's story

Juan Paudillo is a 57-year-old man who lives with his family in the community of La Esperanza. Here he dedicates his time to farming.

Every day, Juan Paudillo rises early in the morning, takes up his machete and puts on his boots to go out to care for his crops with the same energy that he did when he was young. This is because he likes the work a great deal and, in fact, he loves to farm.

Juan Paudillo is requesting a new loan to purchase agricultural inputs to keep his crop of naranjilla [Solanum Quitoense Lam] healthy. [It is used to make an energy drink used across Ecuador.]

He believes production will be good and of high quality.
