A loan of $800 helped to buy morocho (a grain), rice bran and vaccines for chickens.

Jose Clasio's story

José is 41 years old and he is in a common law marriage. He has three children and lives with his wife and children in the city of Ventanas in the province of Los Ríos.

The Bendición de Dios communal bank is located in the community of Rancho Grande in the Puerto Pechiche parish. People there work in farming and raising livestock.

José sells dry grains and raises small animals such as chickens and pigs. He is asking for the loan to buy morocho, rice bran and vaccines for the chickens.

With the help of the loan, he will be able to buy what he needs to farm. He makes his purchases in Ventanas. His dream is to get ahead with the loans from the cooperative. In his free time, he likes to read.
