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

Angel Bolivar's story

Angel, age 55, is married and has six children. He lives with his wife and children in the Chillanes canton in the Bolivár province. He belongs to the San Juan Bautista communal bank, which was formed in the city of Tambanal. This is 40 minutes from the Cooperativa office. The business activity here is farming and raising animals.

Angel is a farmer, and he grows corn, beans, and peas. He also raises cattle, pigs, and chickens.

He is requesting the loan to buy cattle and feed. With the help of the loan he will be able to buy livestock. He will make his purchase in Chillanes.

His dream is to improve his living conditions, to live more comfortably, and to improve or fix the house.

The challenges he faces are the pest infestations and crop diseases that lower production.

In his free time he likes to enjoy the community celebrations and the Carnival festivities.
