Tanya Mariela's story

Tanya Mariela is 20 years old, single, and doesn't have any children. She lives with her parents in Chillanes canton, in Bolívar province.

The 'El Placer' community bank is located in Chillanes canton, in San José del Tambo parish, 60 minutes from our office. The bank has 24 members who work in agriculture; growing bananas, rice, cassava, cacao, soy and oranges. They also raise farmyard animals.

Tanya Mariela grows rice, corn, oranges, soy and bananas. She also raises chickens to sell. She makes her purchases in San José del Tambo and makes her sales in the Sunday street market in Chillanes.

Tanya Mariela is requesting this loan to buy farm supplies, fertilizers, and feed for her chickens. This loan will support her in improving her harvest and selling her chickens. She does not face any serious challenges in her work. Her dream is to own her own home and help her parents.

In her free time, Tanya Mariela enjoys going out with her parents.
