A loan of $550 helped to buy cattle.

Geovanny Victor's story

Geovanny, 19, is single. He completed elementary school but did not have the resources needed to continue with his education. He lives with his mother and siblings. They live in Recinto Bellavista, a sector with humid climate in Santo Domingo de los Tsáchilas Province, a key province where the coastal and mountain regions of Ecuador meet. Its economy has developed thanks to tourism, commerce, agriculture and animal husbandry.

Geovanny started his milk producing business five years ago. He puts long hours of hard work into it every day of the week. Geovanny approached Fundación Alternativa because he found out about the the support it gives the rural sector and he decided to request a loan to buy cattle to increase production of milk he sells locally.
