Clavelina Estherlia's story

Clavelina Estherlia N. M. is 41 years old. She lives with her husband and children in the Ventanas province in Los Ríos. She has two children, Washington and Johana.

Clavelina is a member of the communal group 'Y', which is located 1 1/2 hours from Ventanas. There are 17 members in total, and the majority work in agriculture. This is the first loan that they are seeking from la Cooperativa San José.

Clavelina works in agriculture, producing cocoa and maize. She makes her purchases in Echeandia each month and sells in the same place, and around the area.

She is seeking a loan to invest in the purchase of cocoa and maize to sow and sell. She thinks that the loan is an opportunity to move forward. Her dreams are to have her own business and increase her earnings. Preventing her from achieving her goals is the lack of money and the plagues and diseases that affect the crops.

Clavelina likes to working in the countryside.
