Shirley Margoth's story

Shirley Margoth is 31 years old. She is married, and she lives with her husband and their two children in the Ventanas canton, Los Ríos province.

The members of the “Luchando Por Una Misma Causa” (Fighting for the Same Cause) communal bank are in the La Primavera neighborhood in the Ventanas canton. This communal bank devotes itself to growing short cycle corn and rice.

Shirley grows corn, rice, and beans. She makes her purchases in the city of Ventanas.

She is requesting the loan to plant corn and rice. She will buy seeds, supplies, urea, and fertilizers for her crops. The support from the loan will help to financially meet her needs.

Her dream is to make her house bigger.

In her free time she likes to clean the house, and she likes to listen to music.
