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

Daniela Estefania's story

Daniela Estefania is 18 years old. She is single, and has no children. She lives with her parents in the Chillanes canton, in Bolivar province.

The "EL PLACER" community bank is in the Chillanes canton, in the San Jose del Tambo province. It is located 60 minutes from the main office. This community bank has 24 members who work in agriculture growing plantains, rice, yucca, cocoa, soy and oranges.

Daniela works growing rice, corn, oranges, soy and plantains. She makes her purchases in San Jose del Tambo, and makes her sales in the Chillanes market on Sundays.

The loan she is requesting is to buy agricultural supplies and fertilizers. The loan will help her by helping to improve her harvest. She faces challenges such as the other producers' experience. Her dream is to have her own home and to finish her studies.

In her free time, she likes to go out with her parents and chat with her neighborhood friends.
