Fulgencio's story

Fulgencio C. P. is 46 years old and he is married. He lives in the canton of San Miguel, in Bolívar Province. His children are María, Laura, Miguel, Manuel, Carmen, Arrelio, Esteban, and Transito. María is 20 years old and is the oldest, and the youngest, Transito, is 7 years old.

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.

Fulgencio has worked in agriculture as his family’s primary source income for his whole life. The crops he grows most are corn and potatoes. He sells them in the canton’s Thursday market. He is requesting the loan for agricultural inputs and seed. His hope is to be able to buy his own land so he can build a house for his children. His greatest motivation is to improve his family’s quality of life.

He lives in a community that is quiet, close-knit, and responsible. He likes to work collaboratively with all of the members. His family likes working in the fields.
