Fanny Cesible A. M. is 30 years of age. She is married and lives with her husband and 4 children, Amanda (13), Shirley (11), Jhinson (9) and Thalia (7) in the village of San Miguel in the province of Bolívar.

Fanny is a member of the Santiagopamba rural associatoin, which is found in San Pablo, half an hour from the town of San Miguel. The group is composed of people that are mostly dedicated to agriculture as the source of income of their family.

Fanny works in agriculture. Her largest crops are corn, potatoes and vegetables. She does the buying and selling in the market of Guaranda (an hour from San Pablo).

She requests the loan to buy supplies and to sow potatoes. She thinks that the loan will help her to put more fertilizer on her crops to produce more. Her dream is to buy a small plot of land to enlarge her production. She faces plagues and diseases in her crops.

She likes to go on walks with her family and enjoy the customs of the carnival that is held each year in February.
