Diego Gerardo's story

Diego is 50 years old and lives in a common-law marriage with his wife and their eight children in the city of Ventanas, in the province of Los Rios.
The “La Paulina” communal bank is located in Puerto Pechinche Parish, Recinto La Paulina belonging to Pueblo Viejo Canton; they work in agriculture and animal husbandry.
Diego works in agriculture, growing corn and rice and he also raises chickens and pigs. He is requesting the loan to buy seeds, urea, manure, animal feed and a type of dense corn ("morocho").
With help from the loan he will be able to buy what’s needed for the crops and feed for his animals. He makes his purchases and his sales in the city of Ventanas.
His dream is to buy a piece of land and the challenge he faces is to plant ten ‘cuadras’ [unit of land measurement] of cocoa beans. He likes to get together with his family in his free time.
