Gloria Maria Isabel's story

Gloria Maria Isabel, 58, is a single mother with two children. She lives in the parish of La Magdalena which belongs to the Chimbo Canton.

Her means of income is growing short-cycle crops such as corn. She makes her purchases in Guaranda City and later sells her crops in La Magdalena and at the Saturday fair in Chimbo.

She is requesting a loan to buy fertilizer and supplies for the crops. The loan will help her increase production and income. She has been up against insect plagues and crop illness. Her dream is to buy land to earn more money for her childrens' education and to cover daily household expenses.

She enjoys teaching her children to work in the fields.
