A loan of $800 helped to purchase chickens and pigs.


Nestor Ivan's story

Nestor Ivan is 20 years old, single, and has no children. He lives with his parents in the Ventanas canton in the Los Ríos province.

He is a member of the Cevallos community bank, located in Recinto San Francisco that is part of San Juan del Pueblo Viejo parish in Ventanas. The group members work as cacao farmers.

Nestor works as a farmer planting cacao, and also raises animals such as chickens and pigs. He is asking for this loan to purchase chickens and pigs. The loan would help him increase the number of animals he raises, so that he can sell them for a good price. He faces challenges such as competition and pests.

His dream is to have a larger business raising animals. In his free time, he likes to take care of animals.
