Luisana Virginia's story

27-year-old Luisana lives with her husband and daughter in Ventanas, Pueblo Viejo canton, los Ríos province.

The 'Unido Somos' community bank is located in El Marañón neighborhood, in Puerto Pechiche parish, in Pueblo Viejo canton. The members of this group work in short-cycle agriculture, growing corn, rice and beans.

Luisana grows corn, rice and beans. She buys her supplies from the Karlita Agricultural Supplies Store and sells her produce in Castillo's Store.

Luisana is requesting this loan so that she can sow corn, rice and beans. She will buy seeds, urea, farming supplies, manure and liquid fertilizers for her crops.

With the support of this loan, Luisana will be able to cover her financial needs. She faces challenges such as pests, diseases and changes in the weather. This loan will make it easier for her to obtain supplies.

Luisana's goal is to buy a plot of land so that she can grow a lot more. In her free time, she enjoys doing her housework and spending time with her children.
