Marliz Viviana's story

Marliz Viviana is 23 years old, married and lives with her husband and 4 year old daughter in the canton of Ventanas in the province of Los Ríos. The members of the Nuevo Amanecer (New Dawn) communal bank are located in the hamlet of San Luis de Zapotal that belongs to the canton of Ventanas. They work in farming, growing short-cycle crops such as corn and rice. Marliz grows corn, beans, and peas, and the buying and selling of agricultural products takes place in Ventanas. She is asking for an agricultural loan to buy seeds, compost, fertilizer, urea, and liquid fertilizers. The support of the loan would help her buy, without any problems, the agricultural products which would be of help for the wellbeing of her family. She faces challenges such as pests and diseases and weather changes. Her dream is that her family has health and always be together. In her free time she likes to listen to music.
