Jefferson Wilfrido's story

Jefferson Wilfrido is 18 years old, single without children, and lives with his parents in Guaranda, in the province of Bolivar. The Village Resource Center (VRC) Mushuc Yuyay is located 30 minutes from the office made up of 10 partners in the Quivillungo community in Guaranda.

Jefferson makes his living in agriculture, in the planting of lettuce and broccoli, and he also raises chickens and pigs. He is requesting this loan to purchase seeds, fertilizers, urea, organic manure, vitamins and vaccines for his animals.

With the help of this loan, he will be able to increase his production. He buys and sells products in Guaranda. The challenges he faces are bad climate and plagues. His dream is to be able to buy a vehicle to help in production. In his free time he likes to study.
