A loan of $1,000 helped to buy manure, fertilizer, organic manure, urea and bug killers.

Angel Segundo's story

Ángel Segundo, 30, is married and has four children. He lives with his wife and children in Guaranda Province in Bolívar.

The “Emmanuel” communal bank has 12 members and is located 40 minutes from the office located in Recinto San Juan de Llullundongo belonging to Guaranda.

Ángel is a potato and corn farmer and also raises chickens, pigs and cattle. He requests the loan to buy manure, fertilizer, organic manure, urea and liquids to kill bugs. With help from the loan he will be able to acquire the fertilizers to work his crops. His sales and purchases take place in Guaranda weekly and during harvest time.

His dream is to have a vehicle of his own. The challenge he faces is dealing with middlemen. In his free time he enjoys playing volleyball and enjoying Carnival season.

The previous loan has been very good because he has been able to buy fertilizer and seed and he is “very grateful for the timely support provided; please don’t ever forget to support them.”
