Jose Manuel's story

Jose Manuel is 35 years old. He's married and has three children. He lives with his wife and children in Guaranda, province of Bolívar.

He's a member of the "Nuevos Horizontes" ("New Horizons") communal bank, which is located about 40 minutes from the community of Santa Martha, which belongs to the canton of Guaranda.

Jose is a farmer. He grows blackberries and naranjillas, and he also raises chickens and cattle.

He requests the loan in order to purchase seeds, compost, fertilizer, urea and balanced feed. With the help of this loan he'll be able to by the compost and improve his production.

His dream is to be able to expand his agriculture business and improve his profits so he can use this money for work. In his free time he enjoys going out for a stroll with his family.
