Jenny Marisol's story

Jenny Marisol is 34 years old and lives in a civil union marriage with her husband and her children who are 17, 16, 13, 11 and 4 years old. They live in the Pueblo Viejo canton of Ventanas which is part of Los Rios province.

The members of VRC Unido Somos live in the El Marañón neighborhood near the Puerto Pechiche parish of the Pueblo Viejo. This woman from Ventanas makes a living in agriculture with short cycle crops including corn, rice and beans. She buys her materials in the Karlita agricultural supply center and sells her goods in the Castillo market. She is requesting the loan to plant corn, rice, beans and to buy seeds, urea, farm supplies and organic and liquid fertilizers for her crops.

The support of the credit will help her economically to cover her needs. She faces challenges including plagues, diseases and the changes in the climate. With the help of the credit, it will be easier to acquire her farm supplies. Her dream is to be able to buy some land and construct a house for her family.

Her dream is to buy her own land. In her free time she likes to go out dancing and walking with her children.
