Luis Ecuador's story

Luis is thirty-nine years old. He lives in in a common-law marriage and has two children. He lives with his children and partner in the city of Ventanas in the Los Ríos Province.

He is a member of the "Anchoveta" communal bank. It's located in the parish of Puerto Pechiche, Recinto Anchoveta, which belongs to the Pueblo Viejo Canton where the people work in agriculture and ranching.

Luis works in agriculture; he grows corn, rice, and beans. He is applying for this loan to buy urea, seeds, fertilizers, manure, and a sprayer for pesticide application. With the help of this loan, he will be able to buy fertilizers and a pesticide sprayer to treat his fields.

He will make his purchases and sales in Ventanas. The challenges that he faces are soil pests and diseases as well as the climate.

His dream is to own a small business such as a grocery store and take care of his partner. In his spare time, he likes to go on walks with his family.
