Darwin has fully repaid his loan of £1410.26
Darwin Castillo Picoita is a farmer specialising in the production of greenhouse tomatoes and coffee. He is 34 and married with two daughters. Don Darwin lives in the district of Upper Cucanamá, which is near the small town of Malacatos. In addition to farming, he sometimes works as a bus driver transporting passengers from the terminal in the larger town and tourist centre of Vilcabamba. He relies on loans to help his farming because he makes large investments at particular times of the year when he is short of cash and has to wait several weeks and even months for the harvest to come in - particularly with coffee. He used to work in Spain many years ago as an agricultural labourer - mainly on tomato farms. It was during this time that he learned about growing tomates. He sought a loan in order to buy seeds, fertiliser and prepare the land for growing coffee - most of the weeding and preparing coffee bushes has to be done by hand and he often hires labourers. The loan is for 15 months.
