A loan of $500 helped to buy fungicides for his naranjilla crop.

Jose Israel's story

Israel is a 43-year-old man who lives in Maldonado, a parish of Tulcán. He is very responsible and has 10 children (5 sons and 5 daughters who are ages 24, 19, 16, 14, 12, 10, 8, 6, 5, and 1). The two oldest children help with cultivating naranjillas while the others attend school. Israel lives with his wife and children. He is a day laborer, but he also grows naranjilla.

Israel needs this loan so that he can buy fungicides for maintaining his crops. His dreams include seeing his children finish their education and always having customers who buy the naranjillas that he produces.
