Tomasa Leticia's story

Tomasa Leticia T. Y. is 27 years old, single, and lives with her parents in San Miguel in the Tangara area, which belongs to the Province of Bolívar. She has a son but she does not live with his father.

The name of this communal bank is “Campesinos Unidos” and it is located in the Tangara area, 15 minutes from the Canton of San Miguel. The members of the communal bank work in farming and in business.

Tomasa works in farming, growing corn in order to be able to buy things for the house. She buys her products in San Miguel and sells them at the market in the same canton.

She is requesting the loan to purchase farming supplies, fertilizers and seeds. The loan will help her family business, as she will produce more and she needs to work to pay off the debt. Her dream is to have her own house.

The challenges she faces are pests and diseases among her crops. She likes to play sports with her son.
