Jorge Ovidio's story

Jorge Ovidio F. is 58 years old. He is a widower and lives with his children. He lives in the canton of San Miguel, in Bolívar province. He has 5 children.

The members of the "Unidos Somos Mas" ["Together We Are More"] communal bank work in agriculture. This rural cooperative is located 45 minutes from San Miguel, in Ríos a la Costa. All of the members live in the same area. Most of them work growing corn, wheat and potatoes. The communal bank has about 10 members.

Jorge works in agriculture, growing corn, beans, wheat and potatoes. He makes his purchases in San Pablo parish and sells his goods at the San Pablo market.

He is requesting the loan to buy supplies and fertilizers for his crops. The loan will help him economically so he can cover his needs. His dream is to buy land to leave to his children who will continue to work in this area.

He enjoys celebrating at local religious festivals and spending time with his family.
