A loan helped to purchase agricultural supplies to grow potatoes.


Cristian Marcelo's story

Marcelo lives in Ibarra. From a young age, he has worked in agriculture like everyone else in his family. He has always characterized himself as being very enterprising and enthusiastic in what he does.

Marcelo has been motivated to become independent from his family. He wants to work planting potatoes, a business which he has been doing.

Marcelo asks for a loan to purchase agricultural supplies to grow potatoes and, so, to be able to get a good harvest which will be sold in the markets in the city.

Marcelo is very grateful for your help, since it allows him to improve his quality of life.
