Zoila Ernestina's story

Zoila Ernestina C. B. is 55 years old, single, and lives in Recinto Delicia in the canton of Chillanes, Bolivar Province. She has five children: Hernán, Martina, Ángel, Jose, and Wilson.


Zoila is a member of the Communal Bank “El Progreso La Delicia Recinto”, which is in San José del Tambo Parish. The group has 19 members and their community engages in growing cacao and corn.


Zoila engages in agriculture and is currently planting corn. Every month she purchases products and farming supplies from the agricultural services division of AGRIPAD. She sells her goods at the Mata de Cacao Market in Tambo.


Zoila is requesting a loan to buy supplies for growing corn and views it as an opportunity to get ahead. Her dream is to have better financial income. The greatest challenge that she faces is the lack of financial resources and time.


She enjoys reading the Bible.
