Angel Domingo's story

Angel Domingo is 47 years old and married with 5 children. He lives with his wife and children in Guaranda province of Bolívar.

The communal bank group 'Emmanuel' is made up of 12 members. It is 40 minutes away from the office, which is located in the precinct of San Juan de Llullundongo which is a part of Guaranda.

Angel is a farmer who has crops of potatoes and corn, and he also raises chickens and pigs. He has requested this loan to buy animals, compost, fertilizers, urea and liquid pesticide. With the help of this loan he will be able to increase his production.

He makes his purchases and sales in Guaranda on a weekly basis. His dream is to be able to have a car and a house. The challenges that he faces are transportation and competition. In his free time he likes to relax and enjoy the celebrations of Carnival.

Angel is very happy for the help that the previous loan has provided him. He has trust in the communal bank because it has helped him greatly in his work in agriculture.
