Enma Patricia's story

Enma Patricia is 29 years old, married and lives with her husband and their four children, ages 9, 7, 6 and 1, in Montalvo, province of Los Ríos. The PITA "ventanilla" is located in the San Pablo de Pita neighborhood in the town of Caluma, 45 minutes from Montalvo. This ventanilla is dedicated to agricultural work and maintaining crops of oranges, bananas, cocoa and coffee. Enma makes a living raising cocoa, bananas and orange on long cycles. She buys her supplies at the San Rafael market in Caluma and sells the products in Montalvo. She is requesting the loan to purchase supplies like fertilizers, urea, pruners and to clear her land from weeds and plant disease. The loan will help her improve the quality of her products and avoid crop losses. Her dream is to purchase a car, get more products and expand her production. She likes to be a good, calm and responsible person in her work.
