Gilberto's story

Gilbert is part of the ‘Con Fuerza y Union’ Communal Bank located in the city of Curicó.

Gilbert has been making chili sauce and condiments for 30 years, which he and his daughter sell every day in a market in the city. Gilbert will use this loan to purchase condiments. His goal is to complete the extension on his house. Gilbert’s business has benefited a lot from the previous loans he has taken out with Fondo Esperanza, and he also enjoys the time he spends in the group meetings.

Curicó is part of the region of Maule, located in the centre of Chile. It enjoys a mediterranean climate and is considered to be one of the most pleasant climates in the country. Curicó is known for its wine culture and the magical beauty of its natural surrounds.
