A loan of $800 helped to buy seeds to plant and harvest for profit.

David Oswaldo's story

David Oswaldo is 31 years old and married without children. He lives with his wife in the Ventanas canton in the province of Los Ríos.

The communal bank LA VRC NUEVA UNIÓN is located in the area of Guamayacu, which belongs to the canton of Echeandía. This settlement grows short-cycle crops such as corn, rice and green pigeon peas.

David works growing corn, rice and green pigeon peas, the buying and selling of which take place in Echeandia.

The loan will be very helpful because he could plant and harvest for income. The previous loan helped him to get ahead and he had no problem making timely payments to the communal bank. With this loan he could buy seeds and agricultural supplies such as urea, herbicide, fertilizers, and weedkiller to maintain the crops in good condition.

His family relationship has improved because now he can contribute a little more to the well being of his family. His work is going along better because he has expanded the production and increased his earnings because now with the sale of his crops he is making more profit.

His dream is to continue working together with his family in order for his family and his business to prosper.

He is very grateful for the support.
