A loan of $1,000 helped to buy seeds and fungicides.


Flor Clara's story

Flor Clara is 57 years old, married, and has six children. All of them are married and live outside of Chimbo. Flor lives with her husband and a granddaughter in Chimbo in Bolivar Province.


The Communal Bank named “Sinabamba” is located in the parish of La Magdalena, which is part of the canton of Chimbo and 15 minutes away from the home office. The members engage in farm work, such as growing corn.


Flor Clara grows corn on her own land and partially on rented land. The money from this loan will be invested in the purchase of seeds and fungicides for combatting diseases. This loan will help her continue investing. Flor’s dream is to have good health so that she can continue working with the help of her husband.


In her free time, Flor enjoys going for walks with her granddaughter.
