A loan of $1,000 helped education and to buy a calf.

Nelly Verónica's story

Nelly Verónica A., age 24, lives with her parents and her five month old daughter, Alexandra. They live in the San Miguel canton in the Bolívar province.

Nelly is a member of the Santiagopamba Communal Bank, which is located in San Pablo. It is a half hour from the town of San Miguel. The communal bank is comprised of people who mostly work in agriculture. They plant corn, potatoes, and vegetables.

Nelly goes to school, and she works when she is not studying. She makes her purchases and sells her products every week in San Pablo.

Nelly is requesting a loan for her studies and to buy a calf. Her goal is to have a profession so that she can work. The challenge she faces in order to be able to travel to the university is economical.

She likes to practice basketball, and she likes the traditions like the San Pedro and San Pablo celebrations (towns close to San Miguel).
