Maria Luz's story

Maria Luz is 32 years old, single, and lives with her children (ages 17, 11, and 7) in the neighborhood of San Temistocles in the canton of Ventanas.

The Communal Bank “Narcisa de Jesus” is located in the neighborhood of San Temistocles, which is in the canton of Ventanas. This group consists of short-cycle farmers who grow corn and rice.

Maria Luz is a farmer who has been growing corn and rice for three years. She buys her supplies in Ventanas and sells her products at the market in the same place. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy seeds and fertilizers for growing corn and rice. This will be a great help with increasing her income for the consumer needs of her family and for investment. Her dream is to buy a plot of land so that she can build a house.

In her free time, Maria Luz enjoys watching television.
