A loan of $1,000 helped to buy agricultural inputs.

Luis Eduardo's story

Luis Eduardo C. P. is 22 years old and single. He lives in the canton of San Miguel, in Bolívar Province.

He is a member of the Yagui Grande communal bank. There are 38 members in total, the majority of whom work in agriculture and raise small animals.

Luis works in agriculture for his primary income. He cultivates corn, potatoes, and broad beans. Luis used his last loan to plant potatoes and corn. He is requesting this loan for the purchase of agricultural inputs.

What he likes about his town is that it is a very unified community. Luis also likes working to organize celebrations and to raise animals in the countryside. His dream for the future is to buy his own land so he can build a house and improve his family’s quality of life.
