Eugenio Leopoldo's story

Eugenio, 58, is married and has a 17-year-old son; he lives with his wife and son in the city of Ventanas, Los Ríos Province.

He is a member of the “Bruniquilde” communal bank located in Recinto Calabi which belongs to Ventanas Canton; they work in agriculture.

Eugenio is a farmer who grows corn and also raises ducks. He is requesting the loan to buy seeds, insecticides, fertilizers, urea, manure and balanced feed for his ducks.

He buys his products in Ventanas weekly. With help from the loan he will be able to get the products problem-free with respect to money. The challenge he faces is the high market price of the supplies he needs. His dream is to work, to have good health and to stay alive. The tradition in Recinto is to get together on Sundays to play Bingo and raise funds for a certain program.
