Celia Lorena's story

Celia Lorena is 49 years old, married, and has four children. She lives with her children and husband in the city of Ventanas in the province of Los Rios. She is a member of the Ventanilla 5 de Septiembre group which is located in the banana region, belonging to the canton of Ventanas where they work in agriculture and livestock.

Celia Lorena works in agriculture growing corn and raising pigs. She is asking for a loan to buy seeds, insecticides, urea, a pig, and polvillo [dust or powder sometimes made from rice which can be an ingredient in animal feed]. The purchases are made in Mocache.

With the help of the loan she can buy what is needed for the crops and buy an animal to raise and sell. Her dream is to fix up the house. The challenges that she faces are pests. In her free time she likes to do housework.
