Marcia Gioconda's story

Marcia Gioconda is 24 years old and single, she lives with her mother and doesn't have any children. She lives in the Ventanas Canton in the Province of Los Rios.

This group is called SAN FRANCISCO DE SIBIMBE, and is located in the Sibimbe district which is part of the Ventanas Canton. This group has 20 members who work in short-cycle agriculture, growing corn and rice.

Marcia works in agriculture growing corn and rice on her mother's fields which they farm together. Purchases are made in Ventanas every month and products sold at the market in the same locality.

She is requesting this loan for the purchase of seeds, fertilizers and manure. The support of the loan would help her financially to meet her needs. She faces challenges such as pests that attack the crops. Her dream is to help her mother financially, and that they can live on their own.

She likes to chat with her mother and go for walks.
