Oswaldo Agustin's story

Oswaldo Agustin V. B. is 29 years old. He is married and lives with his wife and their son in San Miguel Canton, Bolívar Province.

He is a member of Yagui Grande communal bank, which is located 30 minutes from the San Miguel office in San Miguel Canton. This bank's members are farmers who grow short season corn and potatoes. The work takes a lot of time.

Oswaldo also grows corns and potatoes. He buys his products in Ambato and San Miguel, and he sells them at the market in San Miguel on Thursdays.

He is asking for the loan to buy farm supplies and fertilizers for growing corn and potatoes. The loan will help him meet his financial needs. He faces challenges like pests, crop diseases and weather changes. His dream is to fix up his house.

He likes to play sports and celebrate carnival, which is a tradition here.
