Laura Emilia's story

Laura Emilia is 29 years old, married, and lives with her husband and children in the neighborhood of Campo Alegre in the canton of Ventanas.

The San Jacinto Communal Bank is located in the neighborhood of Campo Alegre, which is near the parish of Guare in the canton of Ventanas. This Communal Bank consists of short-cycle farmers who grow corn and rice.

Laura Emilia is a farmer who has been growing corn and rice for seven years. She learned this trade from her parents. Her purchases are made at the Jiménez Commericial Center in the city of Ventanas and she sells her products in the same city. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy seeds, fertilizers, and composts for taking care of her crops. This will also help increase her family’s income. Her dream is to have a house.

Laura enjoys remodeling her house and relaxing.
