Tatiana Maybeth's story

Tatiana Maybeth is 20 years old and is in a common-law marriage from which she has a 3-year-old daughter. She lives with her husband and daughter in the city of Ventanas in the province of Los Ríos. She is a member of the Jerusalen communal bank, which is located in the El Caimito district, part of the Puerto Pechice parish in Pueblo Viejo Canton. This bank focuses on short-cycle agricultural work with members growing corn, rice and pigeon peas. Tatiana Maybeth has been doing agricultural work for 2 years.

She is requesting a loan to buy seeds, insecticides, urea, and weedkiller. With the help of the loan, she will be able to buy fertilizer for sowing seeds. She makes her purchases and sales in the city of Ventanas. Her challenges she faces include plagues and bad weather. Her dream is to buy a house and start a profitable business. She likes to do the washing and cook in her free time. She is very grateful for previous loan because it helped her to buy what she needed for sowing and this increased her family's income.
