Diego Gerardo's story

Diego is 54 years old and lives with his wife in a common-law marriage and with his 8 children. He lives in the township of Ventanas in the province of Los Ríos. The communal bank, La Paulina, is located in the Puerto Pechiche territory in the La Paulina district, which belongs to the Pueblo Viejo township. This communal bank is dedicated to labors in agriculture and livestock.

Diego earns a living working in agriculture planting corn and rice, and raising pigs for the last few years. He buys his products in Ventanas and sells them in the market in the same area. With the help of the loan he will be able to buy what is needed for planting, and for feeding the animals. The previous loan helped him to increase his income for his family. His dream is to have enough money to buy a piece of land. He likes to work and get together with family.
