A loan of $600 helped to maintain his cacao crop.

Luis Alfredo's story

Luis Alfredo is 24, lives in a common-law relationship and has a daughter. He lives with his wife and his two year-old daughter in Ventanas Canton, Los Ríos Province. He’s a member of the “Cevallos” communal bank that’s located in Recinto San Francisco that is part of San Juan del Pueblo Viejo Parish in Ventanas. They grow cacao.

Luis grows cacao, and carries out his sales and purchases in San Juan. He is applying for the loan to maintain his cacao crop, so that he can hope to sell it at a better price.

The loan will be a big help to him in meeting his financial needs, and maintaining his cacao crop in good condition. The challenges he faces daily are competition, pests and crop diseases. Luis' dream is to be able to buy a house for himself and his family. In his free time he likes to play sports.
