A loan helped a member to maintain and fertilize her parcels of land.

Juventud Guayaquil Group's story

Ensolina, age 26, has two children, ages 8 and 3. She is moving ahead, together with her husband. She has worked in the production of cacao and coffee for more than 8 years. Her greatest challenge was to extend her agricultural land and obtain a better production.

"I consider myself a persevering, hard-working person with a great will to get ahead," says Ensolina. She works on her parcel [of land] and on others as an assistant so that the money goes further and she can continue educating her son, who goes to school in the city.

She is applying for her loan to maintain her parcel of cacao and coffee in addition to applying good compost so that she can offer a product of quality and her customers will remain satisfied.

Ensolina is the president of the group "Juventud Guayaquil" [Guayaquil Youth], which is formed by 11 members.

In this group: Martina, Adban, Yolanda, Juana, Ensolina, Richard, Eduardo, Saida Margot, Rosveth Miryan, Clementina, Noemi
