Feliciana Rumiana's story

Feliciana Rumiana, 48, is married and has three children. She lives with her children and her husband in Guaranda, Bolívar Province.

She’s a member of the “Muschuc Ñan” communal bank located in the community of Guanto Cruz, Guanujo Parish, sixty minutes from the office. It has 11 members who work farming blackberries and corn and raise farm animals and dairy cows for cheese production.

Feliciana Rumiana farms blackberries, potatoes and lima beans and also raises chickens and pigs.

She is asking for the loan to buy manure, insecticide, fertilizer and urea. With help from the loan she’ll be able to fumigate the blackberry crops.

Her purchases take place weekly in Guanto Cruz. Her dream is to own a farm. The challenge she faces is transportation and bad weather. In her free time she enjoys knitting, resting and enjoying the Christmas season.
