Segundo Fausto's story

Segundo Fausto Gabor C. is 70 years old and is married. He lives with his wife and his 5 children in San Miguel, in Recinto Tangara, which is part of Bolivar province.

He belongs to a rural communal bank called "Campecinos Unidos." It is located in Recinto Tangara, which is 15 minutes from the canton of San Miguel. The members of this communal bank are farmers and merchants.

Segundo has relied on his cultivations of corn, wheat and barley for a source of income for many years. He buys his products in San Miguel and he sells his products in the market in the canton of San Miguel.

He requests a loan to buy farming supplies such as fertilizers and seeds. This loan will support his family's business, since he will be able to produce more and will have to work to pay off the debt. His dream is to buy livestock.

The challenges that Segundo faces are the pests and diseases that affect his crops. He enjoys going out to see his neighbor's animals.
