Rosita Marcela's story

Rosita Marcela is 34 years old. She is single with no children, and lives with her parents and siblings in the Chillanes canton in Bolívar province.

The San José community bank is made up of 21 members. It is located in the parish of San José del Tambo, 60 minutos away from the main office. This bank's members work in short-term agriculture, such as growing corn, plantains, and cocoa.

Rosita works in agriculture growing corn, plantains and cocoa. She makes her purchases and sales in the parish of San José del Tambo. She is requesting the loan to purchase seeds and agricultural supplies such as urea, Matamonte brand herbicide, fertilizers, and weedkiller to keep her crops in good condition.

The loan will be of great help, because she will be able to improve her products' quality. The challenges that she faces most frequently are dealing with intermediaries and pest infestations.

In her free time she likes to enjoy the local festivals.
