Jenny Margoth's story

Jenny Margoth is 33 years old and lives together with her common-law husband and her 10-year-old child. They live in Ventanas, in los Ríos province.

The 'Nuevo Amanecer' (New Dawn) community bank is located in San Luis de Zapotal, in Ventanas canton. The members of this community bank work in short-cycle agriculture, growing corn and rice.

Jenny is a farmer who grows corn. She makes her purchases and sales in Ventanas. She is requesting this loan to buy seeds, urea, manure, fertilizers and liquid fertilizers for growing her corn.

With the support of this loan, Jenny will no longer need to turn to loan sharks and will be able to buy her products without problems. It will help her financially to meet her needs. She faces challenges in her business such as pests, plant diseases and changes in the weather. Her dream is to continue making progress with her farming.

Jenny likes to read a lot.
