A loan of $600 helped to buy livestock.


Gabriel Marcelo's story

Gabriel is 53 years old and is single with no children. He lives with some relatives in Chillanes, Bolívar Province.

He is a member of the communal bank VRC SAN JUAN BAUTISTA. This communal bank came together and was set up in the city of Tambanal, at a distance of 40 minutes from the cooperative’s office. The economic activities carried out are agriculture and animal rearing.

Gabriel works in agriculture. He sets maize and beans and he also rears livestock.

He is requesting this loan to buy livestock. With the help of this loan he will be able to buy one animal. He will purchase it in Chillanes.

His dream is to have his own land to sow. One of the challenges for him is the heavy that damages his crops.

In his free time he likes to play sport, especially indoor bowling, and he enjoys living in his community and the festivities held in the area.
