Diana Verónica's story

Diana Verónica is 24 years old, in a common-law relationship, and has three children. She lives with her husband and children (ages 8, 3, and 1) in the canton of Ventanas in Los Ríos Province.

The Communal Bank “Dulce Sentimiento” (Sweet Feeling) is located in the Caimito II neighborhood in the parish of Puerto Pechiche in the canton of Pueblo Viejo. This Communal Bank consists of farmers who grow short-cycle crops such as corn, rice, and pigeon peas.

Diana engages in farming by growing corn, rice, and pigeon peas. Her purchases and sales are conducted in the canton of Ventanas. She is requesting a loan to buy seeds and farming supplies such as urea, herbicide, fertilizers, and weed killer so that she can keep her crops in good condition.

Her family relations have improved because she can now provide a little more support toward the well-being of her family. In addition, her work will greatly improve because she can increase production. As a result, she can obtain a much better income because the sale of her products will lead to more profits.

Diana’s dream is to buy land and build a house. In her free time, she enjoys reading and listening to the news.
