Riovana's story

Riovana is a native of the Chaqui Kocha km 75 community on the old highway to Santa Cruz. She currently lives in the community with her four children who are all reliant on her. The home in which she lives is of a rustic kind, made of mud with a tiled roof. She makes her living in farming, growing potatoes, beans and cereals, all of these products are grow on land handed down to her by her father who currently lives with her husband.

The loan which Riovana is seeking is to buy agricultural supplies to increase output this year and in this way, improve the financial income to support her family. The area in which Riovana lives produces seasonally, she says that she harvests the crop once a year and it is her children who carry out the agricultural work, sometimes with the help of her neighbours.
