Carmen Pilar's story

Carmen Pilar, 54, is married and has no children. She lives with her husband in the Caimito area of Ventanas Canton. La Verdad Nos Hará Libres Communal Bank is located in the Caimito 1 area of Ventanas Canton. This bank works in short-cycle agriculture, growing corn and rice.

Carmen Pilar makes a living in agriculture growing corn and rice. She makes her purchases and sales in Ventanas.

She's requesting the loan to buy seeds, supplies, fertilizer, urea, and Ranger [herbicide] to grow corn. The loan has been very useful for acquiring agricultural products for planting and being able to have a good crop to earn income for the family.

Her dream is to see that there's an improvement in the crops when it comes time to sell them. The challenge she faces is competition. In her free time she likes to read the Bible.
