A loan of $800 helped to buy fertilizers.


Angel Patricio's story

Angel is 36 years old, single, and has two children. He lives with his parents in the Urdaneta canton in the Los Ríos province.

The solidarity group is called VRC Palmasola. It is located in the Palmasola precinct, which is in the Ricaurte parish in the Urdaneta canton. The members of the group make a living in agriculture and raising livestock.

Angel works in agriculture, growing corn and rice. He requests the loan so that he can buy fertilizers. With the support of the loan, he will be able to buy fertilizers at a lower price because he will buy them in bulk. He makes his purchases in Ventanas each week.

His dream is to buy land. His challenge is climate change. In his free time, he likes to spend time with his family.
