A loan of $600 helped to buy pigs, chickens, and steers.


Angel Edilberto's story

Angel Edilberto is 73 years old and has four children. He is married and lives with his wife in the canton of Montalvo in Los Ríos Province. Angel is a member of the Communal Bank "Embarcadero Chico". The members engage in the cultivation of cacao, oranges, baby bananas, cooking bananas, cassava, plantains, and the breeding of animals.


Angel Edilberto raises animals, such as cattle and pigs. He is requesting a loan to buy pigs, chickens, and steers that he can sell. With the help of this loan, he will buy animals to raise and sell. The purchase and sale of animals occurs frequently in the canton of Caluma each week. His dream is to buy a vehicle for the exclusive use and comfort of himself and his family. The challenges he faces include insufficient finances.


In his free time, Angel Edilberto enjoys spending time with his family.
