Luis Fausto's story

Luis is 31 years old. He is married and lives with his wife and four children in Guaranda, a canton in the Bolivar province. Luis is a member on the Nuevos Horizontes community bank, which is located approximately 40 minutes from his town, in Santa Martha, Guaranda.
Luis is a farmer, he grows and sells naranjilla. He also raises cattle.
He will use the loan money to purchase urea, herbicide and inputs for the naranjilla crops. With the loan from the community bank he will be able to increase the amount of sown land. He makes all his purchases in Guaranda. His dream is to create a natural products business. The challenges he faces are lack of communication and transport, bad climate and crop plagues. In his spare time, he likes to go to the beach with his wife and children.
He is very grateful for the previous loan.
