Rosa Juana's story

Rosa is forty years old. She is in a common law marriage and has two children. She lives with her husband and their two children in Ventanas cantón, in Los Rios province.

The Cevallos communal bank is located in the small town of San Francisco, which belongs to the parish of San Juan de Pueblo Viejo. The members work in agricultural activities.

Rosa works in agriculture, planting cacao. She also raises animals such as chickens and pigs. She is requesting the loan to buy fertilizers, herbicides, urea, and also to buy a pig and food for the animals.

With the support of the loan, she will buy what she still needs for planting her cacao and she will also buy an animal. Her dream is to have some land.

In her free time she takes care of her animals.
