Mary Celeste's story

Mary Celeste is 28 years old, single and lives with her parents in Ventanas, Provincia de Los Ríos. She is a member of VRC Tierra Nuestra, located in the San Luis de Zapotal precinct which is part of the Ventanas district. This Ventanas local works in agriculture, planting corn and rice as part of the short sowing season. As well as corn, she also sows beans and peas. The sale and purchase of this produce is all done in Ventanas.

Mary Celeste is applying for a loan to purchase seeds, solid and liquid fertiliser, urea and insecticide for the sowing season. With the help of this loan, she will be able to improve her family's lifestyle, dedicating herself to sowing so that her produce grows well, which will enable her to go on to sell it at a good price.

The challenges that Mary Celeste faces are plagues, diseases and changeable weather. Her dream is to buy a plot of land. In her spare time, Mary Celeste likes to listen to music.
