Maria Magdalena's story

Maria Magdalena, 35, is single and lives with her parents and her children in Ventanas Canton in the province of Los Ríos.

The members of the Luchando por una Misma Causa communal bank are located in the precinct of La Primavera in Ventanas Canton. This communal bank works on short-cycle agricultural labor growing corn and rice.

Maria Magdalena works in agriculture growing corn and pigeon peas. She also raises chickens and pigs. She buys her products in Ventanas.

She is requesting the loan to buy seed, supplies, Ranger, and fertilizer for the crops. With the support of the loan she has been able to plant economically to supply her needs. Her dream is to plant more hectares of land.

In her free time she likes to do housework.
