Ana Maria's story

Ana Maria is twenty-six years old, is married, and has a daughter and son. She lives with her husband and children in the city of Ventanas, in the Los Ríos province. She is a member of the Jerusalen communal bank, which is located in the El Caimito precint of the Puerto Pechichi parish in the Pueblo Viejo canton. This communal bank devotes itself to the agricultural work of growing short-cycle corn, rice, and pigeon peas.

Ana Maria makes a living growing corn and rice. She is asking for a loan to buy insecticide, urea, liquid weed-killer, and fertilizer. With the help of the loan she will be able to buy all the types of fertilizers she needs for her crops.

She does all of her buying and selling in the city of Ventanas, in the Los Ríos province. The challenges that she is faced with are the plagues and the bad climate.

Her dream is to buy a farm. In her free time, she likes to play soccer. She is very thankful for the help of her previous loan; she was able to buy what was necessary for her crops and increased the income for her family.
