Tomas's story

Tomas C. C. is 56 years old. He is married and lives in the village of Guaranda, in the province of Bolivar in Ecuador. He has 6 children.

Tomas lives in the rural village of Gradas Chico, about a fifteen minute drive from the city of Guaranda. The group is made up of 20 members and the majority of them cultivate corn, wheat, and potatoes and raise livestock. This is the third loan they have requested.

Tomas is an agriculturist. He has a greenhouse where he grows vegetables and tomatoes. He makes his purchases and sells his products in the market of Guaranda.

He requests a loan to cultivate plants in his greenhouse. The loan will help him find success in life. His goal over the next few years will be to provide his kids with an education so that they will be able to get good jobs. The price of his products has been driven down this year, especially for his corn and wheat harvests. It is very difficult to have an income from sales of his products.

He focuses on his work seven days a week, so he doesn't have much spare time.
