Cecilia Rosalia's story

Cecilia Rosalia is 27 years old, married, and lives with her husband and their two children in the Ventanas canton in the province of Los Ríos. The communal bank she belongs to is called VRC San Francisco de Sibimbe and is located in the Sibimbe precinct in the Ventanas canton. It boasts twenty members who are all engaged in short-cycle agricultural activities: they grow sweetcorn and rice. Cecilia Rosalia, on top of growing sweetcorn and rice, raises hens and pigs. She buys and sells in Ventana each month. She asks for this loan in order to buy seeds, urea, fertiliser and manure. The loan will help her by giving her the funds to buy these supplies she needs. Her dream is to have enough funds of her own one day. Her spare time is spent with her family.
