A loan of $1,500 helped to sow beans and to buy supplies like compost and seeds.

Luis Enrique's story

Enrique is forty-one years old, married and lives with his wife and four children in Chillanes, Bolívar Province, in a community called Santa Rosa de Cerritos. Enrique is a member of communal bank VRC de San Isidro, located in Santa Rosa de Cerritos, 40 minutes away from the cooperative’s office.

Its members work in agriculture and raise livestock. Enrique grows beans and corn and has cattle. He is requesting a loan to sow beans and to buy supplies needed for this activity, such as compost and seeds. He will buy the supplies in the city of Chillanes.

Enrique’s dream is to have a comfortable house and land to grow vegetables. The challenge he faces is the risk of diseases in his crops. During his free time, he likes to play volleyball, indoor football and to party together with the community.
