but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy agricultural supplies and pay for labor.

Mariela Floralba's story

Mariela is a hardworking, responsible rural woman. She is married and lives with her children and grandchildren in the rural community of Yail. It is a difficult community to reach due to geographic conditions. She and her husband have worked all their lives in agriculture, as their parents were farmers too. Mariela feels very grateful to Banco Vision Fund Ecuador and Kiva because the loans she has obtained during the course of 11 years have allowed her to boost her agricultural work, achieving economic stability that enabled her to have her own house and provide a basic education for her children.

Mariela would like to obtain a new loan to cover the purchase of agricultural supplies and pay for labor for harvesting the bean crop, so she can continue her efforts while she has strength and is in good health. (The person next to Mariela in the photograph is her husband.)
