Juana Piedad's story

Juana Piedad Z. N. is fifty-three years old and lives with her partner in the canton of Chillanes, in Bolivar province. She has eight children. Juana is a member of the rural bank "Genesis," which is located about two hours from Chillanes. There are eleven members in the group who make a living, for the most part, growing corn, rice, soy, plantains, papaya, and other crops. Juana makes her purchases and sells her products in Mata de Cacao whenever she needs something. She is taking out a loan to plant more corn, which will provide her with more income. She dreams of growing her farm and continuing to work. In her spare time, she like to play with her grandchildren on the patio.
