Vilma Sobeida's story

Vilma Sobeida is 56. She is married and lives with her husband and four children children (ages 34, 32, 30 and 28).

The members of the San Jose de los Amarillos Communal Bank are farmers who sow short-cycle crops: corn, rice and gandul beans.

Vilma Sobeida works in agriculture, sowing corn, rice, and gandul beans.

She is requesting this loan for sowing corn and rice, and for buying seeds, supplies, fertilizers, and manure for her crops. Through supporting this loan, you will help her to cover her needs.

With her previous loan, she planted a bit more corn and beans, and was able to sell at a very good price. This helped her greatly because she made some extra money for the family's costs.

She confronts challenges such as plant pests, diseases, and weather variations. Her dream is to be able to increase her capital and open a business to increase her income.

She enjoys doing sports and exercising.
