German Enrique's story

German Enrique, 34, lives with his wife, children and in-laws in the Ecuadorean canton of Ventanas.

The LUCHANDO POR UNA MISMA CAUSA community bank is in Recinto La Primavera, a rural town in Ventanas. The members operate farming businesses, growing maize and rice.

German grows maize, rice and beans. He buys what he needs in Ventanas. He is applying for a loan that he will use to buy supplies--urea, insecticides, fertilizers, etc.--for his next maize and rice crop.

The investment will provide the support he needs to earn a decent living. For the future, he wants to build a more comfortable house for his family.

German likes sports and, most especially, football.
