The members of the rural communal bank "Luz y Progreso" live 20 minutes from the Chillanes office, in the canton of Chillanes. The 17 members of this communal bank work as farmers and professionals.

Nelson is a farmer who cultivates corn, beans, peas and chayote squash. He buys his products in Chillanes and sells his crops in the Chillanes market and in the surrounding district.

He requests a loan to buy corn, bean, pea and chayote seeds. The support of this loan will help him financially to buy the supplies he needs. Farmers in this area face challenges such as pests, diseases and climatic changes. His dream is to grow his business.

In his free time he enjoys participating in sports.
