Digna Patricia's story

Digna Patricia is 22 years old, is married and lives with her husband and two children, who are 5 and 8 years old. She lives in Ventanas Canton, de los Ríos Province.

The members of the communal bank "Caminando Hacia el Futuro" (Walking Toward the Future), located in Jesús de gran Poder Precinct, Ventanas Canton, make their livings in short-cycle agriculture, planting corn and rice.

Digna makes her living in agriculture, planting corn and rice. She purchases her products in Marlín's Store and makes her sales there as well as in Ventanas.

She is requesting the loan to purchase seeds, supplies, liquid fertilizers, urea and fertilizer for her crops. The loan will help her to meet her needs financially and to face challenges, such as plagues and disease. Digna's dream is to be able to have her own plot of land to better be able to work.

In her free time, Digna likes to go for walks and to dedicate more time to her work.
