A loan of $600 helped buying compost, seeds and fertilizers for his rice and corn crops.

Abel Geremias's story

Abel Geremias M. M. is 20 years old. He is single and lives with his parents in the canton of Ventanas, in Los Ríos province.

Abel is a member of the Recinto San Ramón communal bank, which is located in Nuevo San Ramón, 12 kilometers from Ventanas. The group has a total of 20 members, who work in short-cycle agriculture (with harvests after 6 months). This is their first loan with the Cooperative.

Abel is a student while also working in agriculture, growing corn and rice. He sells his crops in Ventanas every 6 months.

He is requesting the loan to buy compost, seeds and fertilizers for his corn and rice crops. He thinks that this loan will be a great help to him if he can invest it wisely to improve the effectiveness of his work. His dream is to finish his university studies and have a good job outside of agriculture.

In his free time, he enjoys playing sports such as indoor soccer and pelota (an Ecuadorian form of soccer), reading, singing and playing the guitar.
