A loan of $600 helped to buy farming supplies.

Wilson Raul's story

Wilson, 32, is married living with his wife and two children who are 7 and 10 years of age in Ventanas Canton, Los Ríos Province.

The members of the “Caminando Hacia el Futuro” (Heading towards the Future) communal bank located in Jesús de Gran Poder are short cycle corn and rice farmers.

Wilson is a corn and rice farmer. He buys his supplies at the Marlín supply center and does his sales there too and in Ventanas.

He is asking for the loan to buy seeds, supplies, liquids, urea and fertilizer for his crops. Support from the loan will help him economically to meet his needs. He faces challenges like diseases and infestations. His dream is to be able to buy a house someday to be able to leave to his children. In his spare time he enjoys going on excursions and dedicating more time to work.
