Doris Cristina's story

Cristina is a young, rural mother who lives in this community together with her three children and her partner. She has lived a very hard life having to work as a day laborer from a very young age and cleaning other houses. As such, she didn't finish school, but she did learn to work the land with the various produce that can grow in the Ecuadoran mountains.

A few years ago, Cristina started farming and raising her own small animals to earn more income for her household. With her previous loan, Cristina invested in small animals and was able to increase her funds and plant a larger plot of land. But even so, she still needs more help. She is requesting a loan to invest in purchasing agricultural supplies so she can continue improving and caring for her crops.

In the future, Cristina wants to be able to have her own land on which to plant produce to improve her income. And, little by little, she wants to start building her own home.
