Edison Alcibar's story

Edison Acíbar is 33. He is in a common-law marriage and has one 12-year-old child; they live together in Chillanes, Bolivar province. The Monte de los Olivos Communal Bank is located in the San Jose del Tambo parish, 60 minutes away from the office. It is made up of 14 members, male and female. The members of this group work in short-cycle agriculture, sowing corn, oranges, and cocoa. Edison also works in agriculture, sowing corn, oranges, and cocoa. He buys and sells his products in the Chillanes Canton. He is requesting this loan for the purchase of seeds and agricultural supplies such as urea, herbicides, fertilizers, and weed-killer in order to keep his crops in good condition. This loan will be very useful for him because it will allow him to improve his quality of life. Competition is a frequent challenge for him, as are pests. His dream is to continue working in order to be able to buy himself a house one day. He likes to spend his free time with his family.
