Elvis Ebelio's story

Elvis Ebelio G. S. is 32 years old, married, and lives with his wife and 2 children in Chillanes canton, in Bolívar province.

The 'COOPERATIVA LOS MOREROS' community bank has 12 members. It is located 20 minutes from our Chillanes office. The members of this group work in agriculture. They mainly grow blackberries, tomatoes and corn. The older members have been farming for more than 10 years whilst other members are just starting out in the business.

Elvis is a farmer who grows blackberries, tomatoes and corn in large quantities. He makes his purchases in Agro, in Chillanes and sells his produce on Sundays at Chillanes market.

Elvis is requesting this loan to buy supplies such as seeds, manure and fertilizers. The support of this loan will help him to financially cover his needs. He faces challenges in his business such as insect infestations, plant diseases and changes in the weather. His dream is to own his own farm.

Elvis enjoys taking part in sports and being a simple person.
