Veronica Yolanda's story

Veronica Yolanda is 26 years old, is married and lives with her husband and two children. She lives in the Ventanas Provincia de Los Ríos canton.

This communal bank is called Narcisa de Jesus, and is located in the San Temistocles area, belonging to the Ventanas canton. This communal bank is engaged in short cycle farming such as growing corn and rice.

Veronica has been making a living in farming corn and rice for the last 5 years. She makes her purchases monthly in Ventanas and sells her products at the market of the same location.

She is requesting the loan for the purchase of seeds and fertilizers. The loan will help her to satisfy her financial needs. She will better be able to face challenges such as pests and diseases in her crops and the varied climate conditions. Her dream is to buy land to continue planting.

She very much likes to cook.
