The bank has 20 members who do seasonal farmwork such as planting corn and rice. Jesus Flora is a farmer who plants corn and also raises chickens and pigs. She makes her purchases in Ventanas each month and sells at the fair there.

She is requesting this loan to buy seed, urea, pesticide, and fertilizer. With the loan, she will be able to purchase the supplies without any problems. Jesus Flora faces challenges like insects that attack the plantings. She dreams of continuing to work and likes to spend her free time with her children.
