A loan of $1,200 helped to buy strawberry plants, plastic, manure and fungicide.


Alonso's story

Alonso, 40, describes himself as a hardworking person who is responsible with his activities. He has a normal personality. He lives in Otavalo with his wife and son.

Alonso and his wife grow strawberries. He currently has a crop together with a partner. He does well in this business because strawberries are well-priced and his production is god.

Alonso needs to earn higher income to improve his family’s quality of life which is why he needs a loan to invest in strawberry plants, plastic, manure and fungicide to plant in his land. This investment will help Alonso have sales and income of his own without having to work with a partner; this will generate higher income and improve his home economy. Alonso dreams with having a large parcel of land to plant more products and become a wholesaler.
