Martha Mercedes's story

Martha Mercedes is 43 years old. She is married and lives with her husband and one child in the Ventanas Canton in los Ríos Province.

The community bank CIUDADELA LOS ANGELES is located in the Los Angeles area, which is part of the Ventanas Canton. The members of this community bank are engaged in work such as growing corn and rice.

Martha works in agriculture, growing corn and rice. She buys supplies at Procan Commercial, and sells her products in the wholesale market of Ventanas.

She is requesting the loan to buy supplies and fertilizers for the crops so she can plant corn and rice. The support of the loan will help her financially to meet her needs. Her dream is to have greater earnings so as to be able to provide everything necessary for her child.

She likes to spend time with her family.
