A loan of $600 helped to buy seeds and farming supplies.

Diego David's story

Diego David, 21, is single and has no children. He lives with his parents in Chillanes Canton, Bolívar Province.

Diego is a farmer; he grows corn, soya and cocoa beans. His purchases and his sales take place in San José del Tambo every weekend.

He asks for the loan to be able to buy seeds, manure, fertilizer and supplies for the crops. With help from the loan he will increase and improve production which will help him meet his economic needs. He faces frequent challenges like competition and crop pests.

His dream is to have a farm and a house of his own one day to live in peace and not have to worry about paying rent.

In his free time he likes to go out on excursions. He’s supportive, calm and hardworking and enjoys celebrating the carnival festivities.
