Johanna Mercedes's story

Johanna Mercedes is 30 years old, single, and has one child. She lives with her 13-year-old son in the canton of Pueblo Viejo, which is in Los Rios Province.

Johana is a member of the Communal Bank "Anchoveta", which is located in the parish of Puerto Pechinche, Anchoveta District, and is part of the canton of Pueblo Viejo. The members engage in farm work.

Johana is a farmer who grows corn. Her purchases are conducted in the city of Ventanas. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy seeds, fertilizers, and compost for planting corn. As a result, the loan will help to supply what she needs for her family and for her production. Her dream is to have money so that she can live well. Among the challenges she faces are the rains that could damage her crops.

In her free time, Johanna enjoys reading books with Christian stories.
