Flerida Emperatriz's story

Flerida is 39 years old, single with no children, and lives with her parents in the canton of Chillanes in the province of Bolívar.

The VCR Unión y Progreso la Colombia has 15 members and is located 90 minutes from the cooperative in San Jose. This area is known for agricultural activities such as the growing of cocoa, rice, corn, soy, bananas, and oranges.

Flerida works in agriculture planting cocoa, rice, corn, soy, and oranges, and the purchases and sales take place in San José del Tambo every weekend.

She is asking for a loan in order to buy seeds, fertilizers and supplies for crops and to buy pigs for breeding for later resale. The loan will help her meet her financial needs.

She faces the normal challenges of competition and pests.

Her dream is to be able to buy a house in order to live peacefully without worrying about rent. In her free time she likes to go on walks with her parents.
