Alicia Yisenia's story

Alicia Yisenia is 35 years old and lives with her common-law husband and three children (ages 14, 13, and 8) in the canton of Pueblo Viejo.


The members of the Communal Bank “Unido Somos” (We Are United) meet in the neighborhood of El Marañón in the parish of Puerto Pechiche, which is part of the canton of Pueblo Viejo. The Communal Bank consists of short-cycle farmers who grow corn, rice, and beans.


Alicia is a farmer who grows corn, rice, and beans. She buys her supplies at the Agro Karlita Commercial Center and sells her products at the Castillo Commercial Market.


Alicia is requesting a loan for planting corn, rice, and beans. She plans to buy seeds, urea, compost, farming supplies, and liquid fertilizers for her crops.


With the financial support of this loan, she will be able to purchase what she needs. Among the challenges she faces are pests, diseases, and changes in weather. Her dream is to expand her house so that she can live better and more comfortably along with her family.


During her free time, Alicia enjoys listening to music while she is busy with the household chores.
