Lourdes Rocio is 40 and has 6 children with her common law husband. The family lives in the city of Ventanas in the Los Ríos province. She is a member of the Bendición de Dios Communal Bank, which is located in the Rancho Grande precinct of the Puerto Pechiche parish. The members farm and raise livestock. Lourdes Rocio plants crops and raises animals. She is requesting the loan to purchase urea, insecticide, fertilizer for growing rice, a pig, and two hens. The support of the loan will allow her to purchase agricultural inputs, fertilizers, urea, and insecticides. She makes her purchases in the city of Ventanas. Her dream is to purchase a farm to have a place to work. The challenges she faces are the pests in her crops. In her free time she enjoys doing the housework. She is very thankful for the support from the previous loan.
