Gabriel Ignacio's story

Gabriel Ignacio P. V. is 33 years old and lives with his common law wife and their three children in the canton of Chillanes in Bolivar Province.


The members of the Communal Bank “Juntos Venceremos” (Together We Overcome) meet at the fairgrounds of Matilde Esther in the canton of Chillanes. There are twelve members in this Communal Bank, all of whom are devoted to growing cacao and cassava.


Gabriel is a farmer who grows cacao and cassava. He buys his supplies in Mata de Cacao at the end of each month and sells at the fair in Chillanes on Sundays.


Gabriel is requesting a loan to buy supplies for growing cacao and cassava. The assistance from this loan will help him financially to acquire what he needs. His main challenges are pests, diseases, and weather changes. He dreams of continuing with his work and providing his children with an education.


Gabriel enjoys playing sports.
