Viviana's Group's story

Viviana’s group consists of four members, two women and two men. They will invest their money in seeds and farming supplies that they need in order to generate a profit. In the photograph, the woman with sunglasses and the man with a backpack are the spouses of two of the members and are not part of the group.


Viviana is a cheeful, hardworking, and enthusiastic woman. She is married and has a nine-year-old son. Viviana and her family live in the city of Ibarra in Imbabura Province in northern Ecuador.


Viviana works with her husband and the other members of the group in growing agricultural products such as beans, corn, and other crops. This is her first loan with FODEMI and will invest her loan in the purchase of bean seeds, compost, fungicides, and other supplies for planting. Over time, she hopes to obtain a good quality product and sell it at the market so that she can sustain her family. Her dream is to continue growing because she enjoys being an entrepreneur.

In this group: Viviana Sofía, Jaime Fidel, Jaime Fidel, Silvia Rocio
