Mariana De Jesus's story

Mariana de Jesus, 41, is married and lives with her husband and children. She lives in the rural community of Aguas frías de Mocache in the Mocache Canton.

The communal bank EL PROGRESO is located in the rural community of Aguas Frías de Mocache, which is part of the Mocache Canton. For fifteen years, this area has been an agricultural belt of short-cycle crops, like corn and rice.

Mariana de Jesus is a farmer who owns her own land on which she plants corn and rice. She buys her supplies in Mocache and then sells her produce in the Mocache market.

She is requesting the loan to buy seeds, urea, fertilizers and manure for her crops. The loan will help her generate more income for her family and allow her to buy seeds. Her dream is to buy a house.

She enjoys spending her free time with her family.
