Freddy Tobias's story

Freddy, 23, is in a common law relationship and has a daughter; he lives with his spouse and daughter in Guaranda, Bolivar Province. The “Arte y Cultura Wari” (Wari Art and Culture) communal bank is located in the community of Larkaloma 45 minutes from the office; it has 11 members.

Freddy works in agriculture growing potatoes and corn and also raises animals like chickens; he also has a few cows. He’s asking for the loan to buy manure, fertilizer, organic manure and animal feed. With help from the loan he’ll be able to fumigate the crops on time.

His dream is to be able to own a vehicle for the business. The challenge he faces is competition. He likes to play sports in his free time.
