Estalin Walther's story

Estalin Walter G. G. is 28 years old. He is single and lives in the canton of Chillanes in Bolívar province. Estalin is a member of the “Genesis” communal bank, which is located almost 2 hours from Chillanes. There are 11 members in total, and the majority of them grow corn, rice, soy, plantains, papaya, and other crops. Estalin works in agriculture. He grows corn. He makes purchases and sells his products in Mata de Cacao and in Babahoyo three times per month. He is requesting the loan to grow more corn. The loan will allow him to save each season, which will ultimately allow him to grow more. The communal bank is very helpful for him. He likes to play soccer and listen to music.
