Angelita Magdalena's story

Angelita Magdalena is 45 years old. She lives with her common-law partner and has a 25-year-old son. She lives in Ventanas, in the province of Los Rios.

The communal bank "La Verdad Nos Hara Libres" (The Truth Will Set Us Free) is located in the Caimito 1 district, which is part of the Ventanas canton. The members of this communal bank work in short-cycle agriculture, planting corn and rice.

Angelita Magdalena works in agriculture, planting corn and rice. She buys her supplies in Ventanas and sells her products in the same place.

She is applying for the loan to buy seeds, supplies, fertilizers, and Ranger (weed killer) to plant corn. The loan will help her buy the fertilizers. Her dream is to always have the help of the cooperative and the Kiva organization to be able to plant. The challenges that she faces are plagues and having a good production.

In her free time she likes to praise God.
