Segundo Jacinto's story

33-year old Segundo Jacinto R. P. is married and lives with his wife and two children in Guaranda canton, in the province of Bolívar.

The members of V.R.C. GRUPO NUCANCHI KAWSAY live in the community of El Rayo, in Guanujo parish, in the canton of Guaranda, about 25 minutes from the Cooperative’s office. The members are involved in such activities as agriculture, livestock, business, animal raising, construction, and a sawmill.

Luis is a wood saw operator in the town of Riobamba. He buys supplies in the Guaranda market and sells the products in the wholesale market in the same town.

He is seeking a loan to buy agricultural supplies. The money will help him economically to obtain much-needed items. The problems he faces include insect infestations, illness, and a difficult climate. His dream is to own a vehicle he can use for work.

Luis enjoys listening to music.
