Galo Evaristo's story

Galo, 43, is single and has no children. He lives with his parents in Ventanas Canton, Los Ríos Province. He’s a member of the “27 de Octubre” communal bank located in Recinto Santa Sofía that belongs to Ventanas Canton. This communal bank is involved with short cycle corn, rice and pigeon pea farming.

Galo grows corn. His purchases and his sales take place in Ventanas. He’s asking for the loan to buy seeds, fertilizer and urea and to be able to lease more land to plant on. With help from the loan he will be able to buy necessary farm supplies so that his crops will be successful. Challenges he faces are plant infestations. His dream is to be able to buy land. He enjoys playing volleyball in his free time.
