Hilda Leopoldina's story

Hilda Leopoldina, 23, is separated and lives with her two children in Ventanas Canton, Los Ríos Province. She has two children: Gabriela, 8, and Christhian, 4.

The members of the “Valle Alto” (High Valley) communal bank are located in Voluntad de Dios, Ventanas Canton and are dedicated to short cycle rice and corn farming.

Hilda is a corn, rice, pigeon pea, cocoa bean and coffee farmer. She buys her supplies in Comercial Peña and sells at the Ventanas wholesale market.

She requests the loan to plant rice and corn, to buy supplies and fertilizer for the crops. Support from the loan will help her economically to improve production and meet her needs. Her dream is to have a house of her own in five years to continue moving forward with her family. Two challenges she faces are the plant scourges “cinta roja” and “langosta.”

She enjoys playing sports.
