A loan of $1,000 helped to buy seeds and farming supplies.

Reyna Isabel's story

Reyna Isabel, 29, is in a common law relationship with her spouse and six children in Ventanas Canton, Los Ríos Province.

The members of the “San José de los Amarillos” communal bank are located in the hamlet of Amarillos belonging to Ventanas Canton. They are short cycle corn, rice and pigeon pea farmers.

Reyna is a corn and rice farmer. She buys her products at the Murillo Supply and sells there too.

She is asking for the loan to be able to plant corn, rice and pigeon peas. She will buy seeds, supplies and fertilizer to keep her crops in good condition. Support from the previous loan was of much help to her to be able to meet her needs and to combat the infestations in her crops.

Family relations have improved because she’s been able to contribute economically towards her children’s educational expenses.

In her spare time she enjoys going out on excursions and listening to music.
