Joaquín's story

Joaquín N. Q. is 58 years old, married, and lives with his wife and children in the canton of Chillanes in the province of Bolívar. He has three children, all of whom are adults.

The members of the community bank "Jesus del Gran Poder" meet in the community of San Ramón in the canton of Chillanes, 35 minutes from the Chillanes office. The members of this group all work in agriculture.

Joaquín works in agriculture planting corn and a variety of beans. He buys and sells in the market in the Chillanes canton on Sundays.

He is asking for this loan to purchase seeds, manure, and fertilizers so he will have a good quality crop. The support of the loan will help financially meet his needs. He confronts challenges like plagues, sickness, and weather changes. His dream is to improve his home and have a calm life.

He likes to take walks and celebrate the feast of Señor Jesús del Gran Poder.
