Carmen Victoria's story

Carmen Victoria G. C. is 57. She is a widow and lives with her unmarried children. She lives in the San Miguel canton in the province of Bolivar. She has 11 children. The members of the V.R.C SOLIDARIOS CHIMA CHICA live 30 minutes from the San Miguel Office, belonging to the San Miguel canton. This sector is devoted to agriculture as a source of household income. Here they sow corn and small quantities of potatoes and beans. Carmen works in agriculture and sows corn and potatoes. She purchases her products in Ambato, Quito and San Miguel, and sells them in the San miguel market on Thursdays.
She is requesting this loan for the purchase of agricultural items. The support of this loan will help her economically to supply her necessities. They face challenges such as plagues, diseases and the varied climate. Her dream is to buy land to continue sowing, and for her production to increase. She likes to celebrate the holidays of the Niño Dios in September and December with her family.
