Gloria Narcisa's story

Gloria Narcisa, 43, is in a common-law marriage and has three children. She lives with her children and grandchildren in Ventanas province in Los Rios.

She is a member of the VRC La Union group which is located in the Aguas Frias Recinto, Ventanas canton. This chapter has farmers who plant short term crops such as corn, rice and beans.

Gloria Narcias grows corns and she also raises animals. She buys and sells them in Ventanas.

She is requesting a loan to buy seeds, fertilizer, liquids, urea, and insecticides. The loan will help her buy agricultural fertilizer easily and she will be able to work.

Her dream is to buy a house and clear the land. The difficulties that she faces are the infestations, and the lack of water that dries up her crops.

In her free time she likes to travel through the countryside.
