Galo Macario's story

Galo Macario is 44 years old. He is married and has 6 children. He lives with his children and his wife in the city of Ventanas in the province of Los Rios.
He is a member of the communal bank "Genesis," which is located in the Atascoso precinct. It is part of the Ventanas canton and works with agricultural and livestock-raising activities.

Galo Macario works in agriculture, planting corn and rice. He is applying for the loan to buy urea, seeds, Ranger (weed-killer), and a pump. With the help of the loan he will be able to buy the fertilizers and the pump to spray his plantings. He will make his purchases and sell his products in Guaranda. The challenges he faces are pests and diseases in his plantings. His dream is to buy some land. In his free time he likes to read and preach the word of God.
