Aida Galud's story

Aida, 21, is single and does not have children. She lives with her sister in Ventanas Canton, Los Ríos Province.

She’s a member of the “Vencedores Unidos” (United Winners) 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.

Aida grows corn and rice. She buys and sells her products in commercial peña. She’s asking for the loan to buy seeds, supplies and fertilizer for the crops. With support from the loan she’ll have economic help to meet her needs. She faces challenges like crop infestations and diseases. Her dream is to have land of her own to work better. In her free time she likes going out and to spend more time at work.
