Fausto Euclides's story

Fausto Euclides, 37, is single. He has a 16 year old daughter but she doesn’t live with him. He lives in Chillanes Canton, Bolívar Province.

The “Nueva Unión” (New Union) communal bank is located in San José del Tambo Parish belonging to Chillanes Canton. The members of this communal bank are farmers, especially of corn, cocoa beans, rice, oranges, bananas and coffee.

Fausto grows cocoa beans, corn and bananas. He makes his purchases and his sales at the San José del Tambo market every weekend.

He requests the loan to buy farming supplies: fertilizer and manure. The loan will help him meet his economic needs and improve his farming activities. He faces challenges like the fall in price of the products he sells and dealing with middlemen.

His dream is to have a house of his own to leave to his daughter and he enjoys going on trips with his daughter and spending time with his parents.
