Carlos Hipolito's story

Carlos Hipolito is 54 years old. He is single, doesn't have any children, and lives alone in Chillanes canton, in Bolivar province.

The 'El Placer' community bank is located in Chillanes canton, in San José del Tambo parish, 60 minutes from our office. The bank has 24 members who grow bananas, rice, cassava, cacao, soy and oranges. They also raise farmyard animals.

Carlos Hipolito grows rice, corn, oranges, soy and bananas. He makes his purchases in San José del Tambo and makes his sales in the Sunday street market in Chillanes.

Carlos Hipolito is requesting this loan to buy agricultural supplies and fertilizers. This loan will help to support him so that he can improve his harvest. He does not face any serious challenges in his business. His dream is to enjoy good health so that he can continue working.

In his free time, he enjoys going out for walks.
