Purisima Del Rocio's story

Purisima, 39, is in a common-law marriage and has 3 children. She lives with her husband and children in Recinto Desvió De los Amarillo, which is located in Ventanas canton in Los Rios province.

Purisima is a member of the "Pequenos Agricultores" communal bank, which meets in Recinto Desvió De los Amarillo in Ventanas canton. The members of this group work in farming and animal husbandry.

Purisima cultivates corn and raises barnyard animals such as chickens and pigs. With this loan, she will be able to buy supplies such as: chemical and organic fertilizers, insecticides to avoid pest infestations and diseases, and nutritionally balanced animal feed. She makes her purchases in the city of Ventanas.

Purisima's dream is to buy some land where she could farm and also build a house. She really enjoys participating in the Patron Saint festivities that take place in her area and the New Year's celebrations.
