A loan of $800 helped to buy seeds, manure, urea and fertilizers.

Victor Hugo's story

Victor is 45 years old, single, and doesn't have any children. He lives with his parents in Chillanes, Bolívar province.

The Virgen de Baños community bank was formed in Mama Sara de Cerritos community, some 30 minutes from Cooperativa's offices.

Victor's business is growing beans, corn and blackberries. He also raises animals such as cattle, hens and pigs. He is requesting this loan to buy seeds, manure, urea and fertilizers. The loan will help him to buy what he needs for his crops. He makes his purchases in the city of Chillanes.

Victor's dream is to have stable work and enjoy good health so that he can live peacefully. The challenge he faces is a lack of work opportunities. In his free time, Victor likes taking part in sports and enjoying local festivities.
