Eusebia Maria's story

Eusebia María is fifty-one and lives with her husband and daughter in the town of Ventanas, in Los Ríos Province. She is a member of VRC JERUSALEN which is situated in Recinto Caimito I, in Puerto Pechiche parish, in the Pueblo Viejo region. This solidarity group specialises in the cultivation of short-cycle crops, such as corn, rice and pigeon peas. Eusebia María has been growing corn and rice for 15 years. The loan which she is applying for will enable her to buy seeds, insecticide, urea (a liquid for controlling pests) and fertiliser for her crops. She will do her buying and selling in the town of Ventanas, in Los Ríos province. She has to face the twin challenges of pests and bad weather. Her dream is to buy herself a car and see her daughter complete her schooling. In her free time she likes to chat with her family.
