Luis Fausto's story

Luis Fausto, 30, and his wife have 4 children who are 12-, 10-, 8- and 6-years old, respectively. They live in Guaranda, a canton in Bolivar province.

Luis is a member of the Nuevos Horizontes community bank. His town is about 40 minutes from Santa Martha in Guaranda.

Luis is a farmer. He grows blackberries and oranges. He also raises cattle, chickens and pigs.

Luis is applying for a loan that he will use to buy manure, fertilizers, feed and other supplies. He buys and sells everything he needs in Guaranda. His biggest challenges are insects and climate. Your loan will allow him to continue operating his business.

Luis wants to buy a larger farm. In his spare time, he likes to play naipe (a card game) and go to Carnaval.
