Maria Beatriz's story

María, 38, is married and lives with her husband and children in Ventanas Canton, Los Ríos Province. She’s a member of the “Venceremos Unidos” (We Will Triumph Together) communal bank located in Recinto Anchoveta on the way to Recinto La Templanza that belongs to Pueblo Viejo Canton. This communal bank is involved with agricultural activities related to short cycle corn and rice crops.

María Beatriz has been growing corn and rice for several years now. She buys the products in Ventanas and sells them in a market there and in Pueblo Viejo Canton. She’s asking for the loan to buy manure, urea and liquid fertilizer for the corn and rice crops. The loan has helped her increase income for her family’s consumption and to invest. Her dream is to have enough money to buy a tractor to work her land. She likes to clean her house and to cook for the family when they get together on Sundays.
