A loan helped a member to maintain his cocoa plot, to invest in buying fertiliser and repairs so that he has better products and to help his family's finances.

Los Lideres De Ivanquiriari Group's story

The communal bank, "Los Lideres de Ivanquiriari", is made up of 8 members and led by Denev. They are in their second loan cycle. Denev is described as an enterprising person and very responsible, with a desire to move his family forward. He has two children of 10 and 7 years.

Five years ago, Denev started in agriculture with a crop of cocoa and fruit trees. In this opportunity, he is asking for his loan to maintain his cocoa plot. He wants to invest in buying fertiliser and repairs so that he can have better products and greater earnings that help his family's finances.

As a second income, he earns a living as a day labourer. He goes to other plots of land and helps with cleaning and other work.

In this group: Eluisa, Olga, Renee, Clinton Jhoel, Denev Roy, Nicolas Josue, Juan, Santos
