A loan of $800 helped to buy corn seed, fertilizers, animal feed and vaccines to prevent diseases in the animals.

Angel Auelio's story

Angel is 37 years old, divorced, and lives with his parents in the canton of Ventanas, which is in Los Ríos Province. He is a member of the Communal Bank “Virgen de Guadalupe”, which is in the parish of Puerto Pechiche in the canton of Pueblo Viejo. Angel is a farmer who grows corn and raises pigs and dairy cows.

Angel is requesting a loan to buy corn seed and fertilizers as well as "polvillo" [an animal feed made from rice] and vaccines to prevent diseases in the animals.

His purchases are conducted in Ventanas and Quevedo. Angel’s dream is to buy more pigs to increase his production since this has increased the family's income.

The challenges he faces are pests and diseases such as the maize budworm which affects the flower.
