Maria Veronica's story

María Verónica, age 32, is in a common-law marriage and has two children. She lives with her husband and children in Ventanas in the Los Ríos province. The El Guasmo communal bank is located in the Aqua Fría de Mocache precinct in the Mocache canton. They devote themselves to farming and livestock. María grows corn. She is requesting the loan to buy insecticides, urea, and herbicides. With the help of the loan she will be able to buy what she needs for the crops. She will make her purchases in the city of Ventanas. Her dream is to be able to buy a house to live in with her family. The challenges she faces are the pest infestations of her crops. In her free time she likes to teach her children their homework.
