Mariuxi Yesenia's story

Mariuxi Yesenia, age 30, lives with her common-law partner and 8-year-old son named Dannia in the Ventanas Canton in the province of Los Rios.

The communal bank "EL RECREO" is located in Ventanas Canton in the San Vicente sector of Las Lomas. This group is involved in farm activity, growing short-cycle crops such as corn, rice, beans and soy.

Mariuxi grows corn, rice and soy on her parents' land. She makes her purchases in Ventanas and sells at the fairs every day, especially on Sunday.

She is requesting a loan to buy seeds and fertilizer. The loan will help her economically to cover her expenses. Her greatest challenges are the competition and weather variation. Her dream is to grow her business to increase income so she does not have to go without basic needs.

She likes to dance and go out for walks with her family.
