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


Carlos Alfredo's story

Carlos, age 20, is single and does not have children. He lives in his parents’ house in the city of Ventanas in the Los Ríos province. He belongs to the Genesis communal bank, which is in the Atascoso precinct in the Ventanas canton. He works in agriculture and with cattle. Carlos grows corn and rice.

He is requesting the loan to buy urea, seeds, compost, and fertilizers. With the help of the loan he will be able to buy what he needs. He will make his purchases and sales in Guaranda. The challenges he faces are pests and plant diseases.

His dream is to buy a piece of land in order to keep planting and to have a family business. In his free time he likes to play soccer with his friends.
