Daysi's story

The Quiroga communal bank meets every two weeks In the Quiroga parish of the city of Calceta. In this area many people are involved in farming, raising livestock and selling their products.

Mrs. Daysi is a founding member of the communal bank and acts as its secretary. She likes the additional benefits the institution offers as well as the easy access to loans. She is 46 years old and married, and has four children, two of which are adults and the other two are 17 and 15 years old. The latter still live at home and study, one at the university and the other at school. Her husband is a security guard.

She is a homemaker who is determined to get ahead, and decided to set up an organic fertilizer business to produce and sell to the greenhouses and farms in the area. She learned her trade a long time ago and is doing very well since she receives many orders for her products, especially in the seed sewing season. She works Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

She is requesting a loan to buy certain components to make organic fertilizer, such as manure, leaves, branches, crop waste, husks, etc

Her goal is to provide a good lifestyle for her children so they can be successful in their careers.
