A loan of $1,000 helps to buy supplies to develop passionfruit crops and improve his home living conditions.


Franklin Eduardo's story

Franklin is 27-years old. He lives with his parents and siblings in the San Francisco de Sachapamba community in the Cahuasqui parrish, province of Imbabura. This area is surrounded by mountains and provides perfect weather for agricultural work.

Franklin has been an entrepreneur since he was young. He learned to work in agriculture, and was taught from his family as they also do this valuable work. For this reason, Franklin decided to have his own crops, and in this case he is specializing in a passionfruit crop.

Franklin is asking for a loan to get the materials he needs to develop the crops, such as wood, wire and labor for all of the agricultural jobs that are involved in growing passionfruit.

Franklin will be very thankful for the support that is given to him so that his crops can develop in the best way and he can be independent and support his family economically. This will allow him to have his own income.
