Celia Jenny's story

Celia Jenny is 42 years old, a widow, living with her father and her 14 year old son. She lives in the Ventanas canton of the Rios province.

The service point El Recreo is located in the San Vicente Las Lomas area, belonging to the Ventanas canton. This service point is dedicated to short cycle farming such as growing corn, rice, beans and soy beans.

Jenny has been making a living growing corn, beans and rice for the last three years. She buys her products in Ventanas and sells her production in the same place.

The requested loan is for the purchase of fertilizers for the sowing of corn. The loan helps her to increase her income for the support of her family and for investment. Her dream is to improve herself and provide a better future for her son in his schooling.

In her free time she likes to fish and be with her family.
