Cecilia Rosalia's story

Cecilia Rosalia is 26 years old, married, and lives with her husband and two children in the Ventanas canton in the province of Los Ríos.

The community bank VRC San Francisco de Sibimbe is located in the Sibimbe precinct in the Ventanas canton. It has 20 members who work in short cycle agriculture planting corn and rice.

Cecilia works in agriculture and plants corn and rice. She makes purchases in Ventanas every month and sells them in the market in that same town.

She is asking for this loan to purchase seeds, fertilizers, and pesticides. The support of the loan will help her family financially meet this needs. Her dream is to continue with her work and have the income to give her children an education.

In her free time, she spends time with her children and cleans the house.
