Blanca Teresa's story

Blanca Teresa is 43 years old and married. She lives with her husband and children in the rural community of Aguas Frías de Mocache in the canton of Mocache.

The "El Progreso" communal bank is also located in Aguas Frías de Mocache, in the canton of Mocache. For the past ten years, members of this communal bank have made their livings farming short-cycle crops, like corn, rice, and cacao.

Blanca Teresa works in agriculture, growing corn and rice on her own fields. She buys her supplies and sells her harvests in Mocache.

She is requesting this loan for the purchase of seeds, urea, insecticides, fertilizers, and compost for her crops. The previous loan helped her to increase her income to support her family and to invest in her crops.

Blanca Teresa's dream is to buy a house with a yard and a shed. In her free time, she really enjoys doing housework.
