A loan of $800 helped to buy agricultural supplies.

Edgar Edison's story

Edgar, 24, got married six months ago and lives with his wife and five-month-old son in Guaranda, Bolívar Province. The “Arte y Cultura Wari” communal bank is located in the community of Larkaloma, 45 minutes away from the office and it has 11 members.

Edgar works in agriculture growing potatoes, barley and onions; he also works in cheese production and raising cows and chickens. He’s asking for this loan to buy supplies, insecticide, organic manure, fertilizer, vaccines and feed. With help from this loan he will be able to have his own chicken business.

He makes his purchases and sales weekly in Guaranda. His dream is to be able to buy more land to continue planting and to have more animals. The challenge he faces is the competition’s prices. In his free time he likes to rest and to celebrate festivals dancing.
