Luis Eudoro's story

Luis Eudoro is 53 years old, single, and has one child. He and his son live in a house in Chillanes that was left to him by his parents.

Luis is a member of the Communal Bank “Arrayapamba”, which consists of 12 members who are from the same community. They live 25 minutes away from the office of Cooperativa San Jose. The members engage in business activities such as farming, raising animals, and trade.

Luis Eudoro is a farmer who grows beans and blackberries. He also raises and fattens pigs, chickens, and cattle so that they can be sold. Luis is requesting a loan in order to buy insecticides, liquid weed killer, Ranger (a brand of pesticide), herbicides, and urea. With the help of this loan, he will also be able to buy the seeds that he lacks for farming. His purchases are conducted in the city of Chillanes. His dream is to buy land so that he can increase production and improve his lifestyle. The challenges he faces include dealing with the lack of capital that he needs for his work.

In his free time, Luis Eudoro likes to go out, play sports, and enjoy the community festivals.
