Delfa Mercedes's story

Delfa Mercedes, 39, is single and has no children. She lives with relatives in Chillanes, in Bolívar Province.

The communal bank VIRGEN DE BAÑOS is located in the "Mama Sara de Cerritos" community. Most of its members are involved in agriculture, growing corn or raising livestock.

Delfa Mercedes is a farmer who grows blackberries, tomatoes, beans and corn. She is requesting a loan to buy weed killers, compost, fertilizer, urea, insecticides and supplies. Every week she goes to San Pablo de Atenas to buy and sell.

With the help of the loan she will be able to improve her crops. The main challenge she is up against is improving the economic situation of her family.

In her free time she enjoys relaxing and reading the Bible.
