Luisa Del Rosario's story

Luisa del Rosario is 42 years old and married. She lives with her husband and her children: 10 year-old Denilson, 9 year-old Nayely and 7 year-old Lady. They live in Ventanas canton, in Los Ríos province.

This community bank is called '26 de Noviembre' and it is located in Las Blancas, in Ventanas canton. The group has 10 members who all work in short-cycle agriculture, growing corn, rice and pigeon peas.

Luisa is a farmer. In particular, she grows corn, rice and pigeon peas. She makes her purchases in Ventanas each month and makes her sales in the street market in the same town.

Luisa is requesting a loan to buy seeds, fertilizers and manure. The support of this loan will help her to financially cover her needs and increase her production. Her dream is to continue working and to provide her children with an education.

Luisa really enjoys listening to music and dancing.
