A loan of $600 helped to buy seeds, fertilizers, compost, and urea.


Ana Lucia's story

Ana Lucia is 25 years old, single, and has one child. She lives with her parents in the canton of Chillanes in Bolívar Province. She is a member of the Communal Bank "Balacelo", which consists of 10 members.

Ana Lucia is a farmer who grows corn, peas, and beans. The loan she is requesting will be used to purchase bean seeds and necessary supplies for her crops, such as two quintals of compost (1 quintal = 46 kg) and one quintal of urea. With the help of this loan, she will be able to increase her harvest as a result of acquiring composts and fertilizers. Her purchases and sales are conducted on a regular basis in the canton of Chillanes every 15 days.

Ana Lucia's dream is to increase her planting of beans so that she can produce more, increase her income, and live comfortably at home. The challenges she faces include the roads that are in bad condition and the risk of crop loss resulting from an abundance of rain.

In her free time, Ana Lucia likes to rest and relax so that she can regain her strength.
