Maria Corina's story

María Corina is 40 years old and is married with 3 children with whom she lives in Guaranda, in Bolívar Province. The VRC Art and Culture "Wari" is found in the town of Larkaloma, about 45 minutes from the office, and consists of 11 members. María makes a living in agriculture, planting potatoes and corn as well as producing milk and cheese from her herd animals. She is requesting this loan to purchase seeds, pesticides, fertilizers and fungicides, and with it she will be able to save her potato and corn crops. Buying and selling occurs in Guaranda every two weeks. Her dream is to be able to own her own vehicle, because the challenges she faces are transport and competition. In her free time she likes to rest, and the cultural traditions she enjoys the most are those that occur during Christmastime.
