The members of the JERUSALEN community bank are located in Caimito district, in Puerto Pechiche parish, in Pueblo Viejo canton. The members of this community bank work in short-cycle agriculture, growing corn, rice and pigeon peas. They have been in this line of work for many years.

Ana Maria is a farmer who grows corn, rice and pigeon peas. She buys her products in the García and López shopping areas and sells her products in the Vaca shopping area. She is requesting this loan to buy farming supplies and fertilizers for her corn, rice and pigeon pea crops. The support of this loan will help her to financially cover her needs. She faces challenges such as insect infestations, plant diseases and changes in the weather. Her dream is to buy a plot of land and some assets.

Ana Maria likes attending her evangelical church.
