Monica Narcisa's story

Mónica Narcisa, 33, lives with her common-law husband and their three children, ages 12, 9, and 1, in the canton of Pueblo Viejo. The members of the communal bank “Unido Somos” (We Are United) meet in the neighborhood of El Marañón in the parish of Puerto Pechiche, which is part of the canton of Pueblo Viejo. The communal bank members are seasonal farmers who grow corn, rice, and beans.

Mónica grows corn, rice, and beans. She buys her supplies at the Agro Karlita Commercial Center and sells her products at the Castillo Commercial Market. She is requesting a loan to plant corn, rice, and beans and will buy seeds, urea, compost, farming supplies, and liquid fertilizers for her crops.

With the financial support of this loan, she will be able to purchase what she needs. The challenges she faces include pests, diseases, and changes in weather. Her dream is to buy machinery so that she can treat and work the land. In her free time, Mónica enjoys doing household chores.
