Sujey Johanna's story

Sujey Johanna is 32 years old, a single mother of two children, and lives with her children in the city of Ventanas in the Los Rìos province.

She is a member of the communal bank JERUSALEN, which is located in the Caimito region, belonging to the Puerto Pechiche parrish, in the Pueblo Viejo canton. This solidarity group is dedicated to short cycle agricultural work such as corn, rice, and Gandul bean planting.

Sujey Johanna has made a living planting corn and rice for five years. She is requesting the loan to buy agricultural inputs, insecticides, urea, liquid herbicides, and fertilizers. With the help of the loan she can buy fertilizer for the crops. She will make these purchases in the city of Ventanas, in the province of Los Rìos. The challenges she faces are plagues and bad weather.

Her dream is to buy herself some property and a truck. In her free time she likes to play basketball and indoor soccer. She is very thankful for her former loan.
