A loan of $500 helped to buy manure, fertilizer, urea and weed killers.

Digna Fidela's story

Digna is 38 years old and is married with three children. She lives with her husband and children in the canton of Ventanas in Los Ríos Province. She is a member of the October 27th Communal Bank, which is located in the neighborhood of Santa Sofía in the canton of Ventanas. This communal bank supports the work of short-cycle farmers who grow corn, rice, and pigeon peas.

Digna is a farmer who grows corn and rice. She buys her supplies and sells her products in Ventanas.

Digna is requesting this loan to buy manure, fertilizers, urea, and weed killers. With the help of this loan, she will be able to purchase the inputs necessary for cultivation without any difficulties. She faces challenges such as plagues, mice, and locusts in the crops.

Her dream is to be able to purchase terrain that she can harvest and on which she can build a house. In her free time, she likes to do housework.
