Digna Patricia's story

Digna Patricia is 23 years old, single, and has a daughter. She lives with the daughter and a sister in the city of Ventanas, in De Los Rios province. She is a member of the "Caminando Hacia el Futuro" communal bank, located in a rural settlement of Jesús del Gran Poder, which is part of Ventanas canton, an area where people make their living from agriculture.

Digna Patricia farms, and also raises chickens and pigs. She is applying for a loan to buy one pig, animal feed, urea fertilizer, insecticides, herbicide, and manure.

With the help of the loan, she will improve her standard of living by earning income. Her dream is to buy land for expanding her plantings. The challenge she is facing is lack of income. In her free time she likes to work more.

"I am very grateful for the previous loan," she says.
