A loan of $1,000 helped to buy seeds, fertilizer and manure.

Jesus Flora's story

Jesus Flora is 31 years old, married, and lives with her husband and their two children in Ventanas Canton, in the province of Los Ríos.

Her community bank is called VRC SAN FRANCISCO DE SIBIMBE and is located in Recinto Sibimbe in Ventanas Canton. The twenty members of the bank work in agriculture growing corn and rice.

Jesus too grows corn and rice. She buys her supplies in Ventanas each month and sells the produce in the local market.

She is seeking a loan to buy seeds, fertilizer and manure. The money will help her to purchase these necessities. Sometimes she is faced with problems such as when her crops are attacked by insects. Jesus’s hope is to be able to continue her work. She enjoys watching television.
