Segunda Oliva's story

Segunda Oliva, 32, lives in a common-law relationship. She has four children and lives with her spouse and the children, ages 12, 10, 9, and 7, in Chillanes, province of Los Ríos.

Segunda works in agriculture growing tomato plants. She also has a business selling clothing and costume jewelry.

Segunda is requesting the loan to buy tomato plants, organic fertilizer, liquid herbicide for pests, urea, and fertilizer. With the help of the loan she will be able to buy the fertilizers.

She buys and sells in Chillanes. Her dream is to be able to build a house in the city of Riobamba and increase her crops.

The challenges she faces are the lack of work and of money. In her free time she likes to be with her children, go out, watch television, listen to music, and enjoy the Carnival festivals.
