Leibert Isidro's story

Leibert Isidro is 32 years old, single, and doesn't have any children. He lives with his parents in Chillanes canton, in Bolívar province.

The 'Unión y Progreso la Colombia Baja' community bank has fifteen members and is located 90 minutes from our cooperative. The members of this bank work in agriculture, growing cacao, rice, corn, soy, bananas, oranges, etc.

Leibert is a farmer who grows cacao, rice, corn, soy and bananas. He makes both his purchases and sales in San José del Tambo every weekend.

Leibert is requesting this loan to buy seeds, manure and agricultural supplies to keep his crops in good condition.

The support of this loan will help Leibert to financially cover his needs. He faces very frequent challenges such as competition and pests.

Leibert's dream is to buy more hectares of land so that he can increase the amount of crops he grows and also his income. In his free time, he enjoys taking part in sports, especially volleyball.
