Leonardo Fabian's story

Leonardo Fabián Guaman C. is 22 years old, and lives with his common-law wife and his son. They live in the county of San Miguel in the Bolivar province.

Leonardo is a member of the communal bank "Calzado Solidario," located in a compound that is 15 minutes outside of San Miguel county, on the road to the coast. There are 19 members in total, who work in agriculture and livestock production.

Leonardo works in agriculture to support his family. His main crop is corn. He sells his products in the market of San Miguel and from his house.

Each year in February the main cultural event is Carnival, a time when families take advantage of the celebration to get together.

Leonardo requests a loan to buy supplies for his work in the fields. His goal is to produce a good income for the family. The challenges he faces are problems with the weather that affect his crops.
