Laura Magdalena's story

Laura Magdalena is 27 years old, in a common-law marriage, and has two children. She lives with her common-law husband and children in the city of Ventanas within the province of Los Rios.

She is a member of the communal bank AVANZA. The members work in agriculture and live in the sector of Agua Frías, where they grew up. They mostly work in agriculture or with livestock.

Laura Magdalena works in agriculture planting corn and rice as well as breeding pigs. She will use the loan to buy agricultural inputs, such as urea, insecticides, fertilizer, and Ranger herbicide. With this loan, she will be able to increase her production.

She will buy the supplies in the city of Ventanas every 8 days. The challenge she faces is the lack of money.

She hopes to have more sown fields. In her spare time, she likes to spend time with her family.
