Edgar German's story

Edgar German, 58, is single and has no children. He lives with his nephews in Chillanes Canton, Bolívar Province.

The “San José” communal bank consists of 21 members, both men and women, and is located in San José del Tambo Parish sixty minutes from the office. This communal bank is dedicated to short cycle corn, banana and cocoa bean farming.

Edgar is a corn, banana and cocoa bean farmer. His purchases and sales take place in San José del Tambo Parish. He’s asking for a loan to buy seeds and farm supplies like urea, Matamonte [herbicide], fertilizer and weed killer to maintain his crops in good condition.

The loan will be of great help for him because he’ll be able to improve his products. The challenges he faces are very frequent: competition, the roads and pests. His dream is to have high quality products to sell in order to earn better income. He considers himself to be a responsible, honest person and he enjoys carnival.
