A loan of $600 helped to buy fertilizers, manure, insecticides, seeds and a pump to fumigate.


Elvis Fernando's story

Elvis is 21 years old and is in a common-law marriage. He has three children and lives in his parents' house with his partner and small children. He lives in the Mocache canton of the Los Rios province. His loan group is called '27 de octubre' and is located in the Sara Guerrero precinct in the Mocache canton, where residents make a living from agricultural work and livestock.

Elvis makes a living from agriculture, growing corn. He works on his parents' land. He will make the purchases in Mocache at the market on Thursdays. With the money he has been able to cover some of his expenses, such as paying for labor and buying some supplies. He is asking for the loan to buy fertilizers, manure, insecticides, seeds and a pump to fumigate.

Elvis' goal is to keep working and have more income to keep investing and buying land to build a house for his family. In his free time he likes to play sports and spend time with his family.
