Juan Carlos's story

Juan Carlos is 30 years old, single and has no children. He lives in the city of Guaranda, Province of Bolivar. The communal bank Tagma Rumiñahui is made up of 14 members at almost 25 miles from the San Simon office. They devote themselves to crop and livestock farming. Juan Carlos earns a living in farming, growing soft corn and potatoes, as well as selling natural fertilizer and raising chickens. He is seeking the loan to purchase seeds, urea, insecticides and animals. With the support of the loan he will purchase the things he was needing so much. He makes his purchases and sales every two weeks in the city of Guaranda. His dream is to buy a vehicle. The challenge he faces is transport. In his free time he likes to play volleyball and enjoy the festivities of Carnival when it comes around.
