A loan of $600 helped to buy supplies and fertilizers.


Ana Luisa's story

Ana Luisa is 50 years old, single, and doesn't have any children. She lives in El Progreso, in Chillanes canton.

The 'DIVINO NIÑO' community bank is located 20 minutes from our Chillanes office. It has ten members and this is the third loan that they have requested from our organization. The members of this bank work in agriculture, growing cacao, corn and bananas. They also sell dried grains.

Ana Luisa is a farmer who grows cacao, corn, bananas, soy and cassava. She also raises birds. She makes her purchases in Chillanes and San Pablo and makes her sales in the Sunday market in Chillanes.

This loan will help Ana Luisa to buy supplies and fertilizers. Her loans have helped her to increase her crop production. She has faced challenges such as illnesses amongst her workers, pest infestations and plant diseases. Her dream is to have money.

Ana Luisa enjoys being a hard-working person and listening to music.
