A loan of $1,600 helped buy seeds, fertilizers and manure.

Elvia Leonor's story

Elvia is 23 years old; she is single and lives with her parents in the Ventanas neighborhood, Province of los Ríos.

The members of the V.R.C. Lord of Health communal bank are located in the Soloma precinct, part the Echeandia neighborhood, it is mostly inhabited by people who work in agriculture growing corn and rice.

Elvia works in agriculture harvesting corn and rice; she buys her items in Ventanas and sells them in markets everyday but especially on Sundays.

Elvia needs a loan to buy seeds, fertilizers and manure. The loan will help her to financially meet her needs and to face challenges like plagues and disease that hurt her crops as well as the variation in climate. Elvia’s dream is to a corn sheller.

She likes working in agriculture and helping out her parents.
