Jenny Margoth's story

Jenny Margoth is 33 years old. She is single and lives with her 10 year old daughter in the Ventanas Canton in the Los Rios Province.

She is a member of the Community Bank "NUEVO AMANECER" ("NEW DAWN"), which is located in the San Luis de Zapotal district, part of Ventanas Canton. This group has 12 members who mostly work doing things such as growing corn and rice, an ancient activity.

Jenny Margoth works in agriculture growing corn and rice. She buys her supplies at the PRONACA Commercial, and sells in the wholesale market of Ventanas.

She is requesting a loan for growing corn and rice; she will purchase seeds, manure and treatments for the crops. With the support of the loan, it will help her financially to meet her needs. She faces challenges such as worker illness and lack of money for continued investment. Her dream is to have more income in order to provide a better education for her daughter.

She likes to listen to music and celebrate at the local festivals with her family.
