Victoria Filomena's story

Victoria Filomena P. C. is 34 years old. She is single and lives with her mother in Chillanes canton, in Bolívar province. She doesn't have any children.

The 'COOPERATIVA LOS MOREROS' community bank has 12 members. It is located 20 minutes from our Chillanes office. The members of this group work in agriculture. They mainly grow blackberries, tomatoes and corn. The older members have been farming for more than 10 years whilst other members are just starting out in the business.

Victoria is a farmer who grows blackberries, tomatoes and corn in large quantities. She makes her purchases in Agro, in Chillanes and sells her produce on Sundays at Chillanes market.

Victoria is requesting this loan to buy supplies such as seeds, manure and fertilizers. The support of this loan will help her to financially cover her needs. She faces challenges in her business such as insect infestations, plant diseases and changes in the weather. Her dream is for her crops to grow well and to make good profits.

Victoria enjoys listening to music.
