A loan of $600 helped to buy cows and animal feed.

Jesus Gerardo's story

Jesus is a 32-year-old single man who has no children. He lives with his parents in the city of Tambanal in the canton of Chillanes in the province of Bolívar.

He is a member of the community bank San Juan Bautista, which is in the city of Tambanal, which is 40 minutes away from the cooperative farm where he works growing plants and raising animals. He grows corn and beans, and he also raises cows, pigs and chickens.

He is seeking this loan so that he can buy a cow as well as animal feed. He will make the purchases in Chillanes.

His dream is to improve his standard of living and to increase his production. He faces challenges such as the natural phenomena including crop disease than can affect his harvests.

In his free time he likes to enjoy community festivals and carnivals.
