A loan of $800 helped to buy agricultural supplies.

Luis Alfredo's story

Luis is 27 years old and is in a common law marriage. He lives with his wife and his 4-year-old son. They live in the canton of Ventanas in the province of Los Rios.

The "San Nicolas" communal bank is located in the community of San Nicolas which belongs to Ricaurte Parish, Urdaneta Canton. The members work in agriculture and livestock.

Luis works in agriculture and has been cultivating corn and rice for a couple of years. He buys his supplies in Ventanas and sells them on the market there. He is asking for a credit to buy manure and fertilizers for his cultivation of corn and rice. The loan will help him to increase the income of his family.

His dream is to buy land. He enjoys watching television and he likes his work.
