Rosa Natividad's story

Rosa Natividad is 50 years old. She is married. She lives with her husband and two children who are 20 and 30 years old in the Chillanes canton, in the province of Bolívar.

The SAN JACINTO communal bank is located in the San José del Tambo Parrish and San Jacinto precinct which is in the Chillanes canton. The members of the communal bank are farmers. They primarily farm corn, cocoa, bananas, oranges and raise animals.

Rosa grows corn, cocoa, bananas, oranges and she raises animals. She buys and sells her products in the San José del Tambo market every weekend. She is requesting this loan to purchase fertilizers, seeds, farm consumables, urea and other items for fertilizers to get rid of pests in her crops to keep them healthy. This loan is also to purchase food for the animals she is raising, so she can sell them at a better price.

This loan will serve as support to supplement her economic needs and improve the quality of her products and her farming ventures. She is facing challenges like the decline of prices for the products she sells. Her dream is to be able to buy a house so she can live peacefully with her family.

She is known for being calm, honest, very responsible and punctual with her payments. She likes to go out. She likes parties, especially during Carnival.
