Edison Washington's story

Edison is 44 years old. He lives in a common-law marriage with his wife. He has five children. He lives in the city of Ventanas in the province of Los Ríos.

The communal bank "Solidaria" is located in the rural settlement of San Gabriel. It belongs to the Ventanas Canton and is dedicated to agricultural and livestock workers.

Edison makes a living from agriculture. He sows maize, rice, and calabashes. He also breeds animals, such as pigs and chickens. He is requesting the loan in order to purchase urea, pesticide, and insecticide.

With the help of the loan he will be able to buy everything he needs for his agricultural activities. He makes his purchases in Ventanas. His dream is to buy a car. The challenges he faces are diseases. In his free time he likes to rest.
