Clara Jaqueline's story

Clara Jaqueline, 37, is married and has four children. She lives with her children and her husband in the city of Ventanas in the province of Los Ríos. She's a member of Jerusalén Communal Bank, located in the El Caimito I neighborhood in the parish of Puerto Pechiche, Pueblo Viejo Canton. This communal bank consists of short-cycle farmers who grow corn, rice, and pigeon peas.

Clara Jaqueline makes a living in agriculture, growing corn and rice. She's requesting the loan to buy insecticide, urea, liquid weedkiller, and fertilizer. With the help of the loan she'll buy the fertilizer for the plantings.

She'll make her purchases in the city of Ventanas in the province of Los Ríos. The challenges she faces are pests and bad weather.

Her dream is to buy herself a car and a farm. In her free time she likes to listen to music and play volleyball and indoor soccer. She's very grateful for the help from the previous loan.
