Abdon Alfredo's story

Abdón Alfredo T. T., 46, is single and lives with his parents in Chillanes canton, Bolívar province. He has no children.

Members of the El Batan communal bank are located 90 minutes from the Chillanes office. They belong to Chillanes canton. The bank has 21 members who are short cycle (cocoa bean, manioc, maize) farmers. They have been in this line of work for a long time.

Abdón has been a cocoa bean, manioc and maize farmer for a long time. He buys his products in Bucay canton and sells at Chillanes’ market and in his own settlement.

He is asking for funds to buy farming supplies and fertilizers for the cocoa bean crop. Support from the loan will help him economically to meet his needs. They face challenges like infestations, illnesses and changes in the weather. His dream is to continue working.

He enjoys working with his family.
