Greta Yolanda's story

Greta Yolanda is 43 years old. She is single and doesn't have any children. She lives alone in Chillanes canton, in Bolívar province.

The 'Unión y Progreso la Colombia Baja' community bank has fifteen members and is located 90 minutes from our cooperative. The members of this bank work in agriculture, growing cacao, rice, corn, soy, bananas, oranges, etc.

Greta is a farmer who grows cacao, rice, corn, soy and oranges. She makes her purchases and sales in San José del Tambo every weekend.

Greta is requesting this loan to buy seeds, manure and supplies for her crops. She will also invest in buying pigs to raise and then sell.

The support of this loan will help Greta to financially cover her needs. She faces very frequent challenges in the form of competition and pests.

Greta's dream is to buy land so that she can sow cacao.

In her free time, Greta enjoys going to visit her parents.
