Juan Israel's story

Juan Israel is 27 years old, single and has no children. He lives with his parents in the city of Guarand, Province of Bolivar.

The communal bank Tagma Rumiñahui is made up of 14 members at almost 25 minutes from the San Simon office. They devote themselves to crop and livestock farming.

Juan Israel earns a living growing and selling potatoes, and raising and selling chickens. He is seeking the loan to purchase chickens, a calf and a pig.

With the support of the loan he is going to expand his business. He makes his purchases and sales every two weeks in the city of Guaranda.

His dream is to have a vehicle for his convenience. The challenge he faces is transport.

In his free time he likes to play indoor soccer and enjoys himself a lot during Carnival season.
