A loan of $600 helped to buy cattle, vaccinations and feed.

Wilian Wilfrido's story

Wilian is 22 years old. He is single and has no children. He lives with his parents in the Chillanes district, in the Bolívar province of the Tambanal community.

Wilian belongs to the "San Juan Bautista" communal bank which was created in the city of Tambanal - 40 minutes away from the cooperative office. The communal bank works in the fields of agriculture and raising animals.

Wilian makes a living in agriculture, growing corn and beans, and also by raising cattle. He is applying for a loan to buy cattle, vaccinations and feed. With the help of this loan he will be able to buy the cattle in Chillanes.

Wilian's dream is to finish his studies and work independently so that he does not have to rely on his parents. One challenge that he faces include low production due to environmental factors.

In his spare time Wilian likes to play volleyball and football.
