Mercy Susana's story

Mercy Susana is 34 years old. She is unmarried and has no children. She lives with her parents in Chillanes canton, in Bolivar province. Mercy Susana works in farming, growing corn, soy beans, and cacao. She makes purchases and sells her produce in San José del Tambo each weekend. She is requesting the loan to purchase seeds, compost, fertilizer, supplies, and manure for the crops. This loan will help her improve the quality of her produce. The most frequent challenges she faces are competition and blight. Her dream is to buy a house where she can live peacefully with her family. In her free time, she enjoys the carnival festivities.
