María makes a living in agriculture, planting potatoes and corn as well as producing milk and cheese from her herd animals. She is requesting this loan to purchase seeds, pesticides, fertilizers and fungicides, and with it she will be able to save her potato and corn crops. Buying and selling occurs in Guaranda every two weeks. Her dream is to be able to own her own vehicle, because the challenges she faces are transport and competition.

About Cooperativa San Jose

This loan is administered by Cooperativa San Jose, a 45,000-member credit union located high in the Andes Mountains of Ecuador’s poorest province, Bolivar. They offer a unique loan called “Ventanillas Rurales” [Window to the Countryside], which uses a group guarantee but is an individual loan with a savings component, mostly to rural borrowers. Due to low savings rates and a history of macroeconomic instability, many traditional loans in Ecuador demand interest rates that are prohibitively high for some borrowers. There is also a high incidence of extortionist black-market lending in Ecuador. CSJ helps mitigate these problems by providing a less onerous and more appropriate option. Join CSJ’s Lending Team!
