Gabriel's story

Gabriel C. A. is 27 years old and married. He lives with his wife and their children in the Guaranda canton in the Bolívar province. He has four children. Gabriel belongs to the Casaiche Chilipamba Communal Bank, which is half an hour from Guaranda. It is a group that works in agriculture and farming livestock such as dairy cows and pigs. The group has 20 members. Gabriel grows corn, wheat, beans, and potatoes. He also raises dairy cows. He buys them in Guaranda, and he sells them in the wholesale market in the same city. He is requesting the loan to buy supplies for his corn, wheat, bean, and potato crops. He also wants the loan to buy animals to fatten and later sell. The loan will help him provide his family with the necessities. His dream is to buy a house and to give his children an education. He would like the amount of the loan to be higher.
