Martha Cecilia's story

Martha Cecilia is 39 years old, single and lives with her parents in Chillanes Canton, Bolívar Province. The “Patrón San Miguel” (Patron Saint Michael) communal bank’s members are located in Pailaloma Recinto, 60 minutes from the office. It belongs to Chillanes Canton. This communal bank has 13 members dedicated to corn, potato and wheat farming. Martha is a corn, potato and wheat farmer. She buys her supplies in Chillanes and in San Pablo at the end of each month and her sales take place during the Sunday market in Chillanes. She is asking for the loan to buy some farming supplies in addition to fertilizer and manure. Support from the loan will help her economically to meet her needs and increase production. The challenges she faces are infestations, illnesses and weather variations. Her dream is to buy livestock some day to go into animal raising. She enjoys spending time with her family.
