Jenny Patricia's story

Jenny Patricia is 36 years old, has a common law marriage, and has five children. She lives with her husband and children in the Ventanas Canton, Los Rios Province. The V.R.C. Dulce Sentimiento (Sweet Feeling) is in Recinto Caimito II, Puerto Pechiche parrish, Pueblo Viejo Canton. In this area, people do agricultural work with short-cycle corn, rice, and pigeon peas.

Jenny works in agriculture planting corn, rice, and pigeon peas. She makes her purchases and sale in the Ventanas Canton. She asks for a loan to buy seeds and agricultural products like urea, herbicide, fertilizer, and weed-killer to keep her crops in good condition. The credit will be a great help because she will be able to buy fertilizers and seeds with no problems. With the money from the previous loan she was able to buy seeds and agricultural products like urea, herbicide, fertilizer, and weed-killer to keep her crops in good condition.

Within the family, relationships have improved because now she can bring in a bit more for the good of the family. Things are going much better in her work because she has increased production, and income has improved because now she gets a better income from the sale of her products. The support of her previous loan has helped her to succeed, and she had no problems repaying the loan using the schedule set by the communal bank.

This new loan will be a great help because she will be able to plant corn and rice and to harvest for a profit. Her dream is to continue working together with her family to achieve success in the business.

"She is very thankful for the help she's received."
