Luisa Del Rosario's story

Luisa del Rosario is 43 years old, married, and has three children. She lives with her husband and children in Ventanas.

She is a member of the 26 DE NOVIEMBRE Communal Bank, which is located on the Achotillo compound. She changed compounds to be closer to the Cooperative. This compound is part of the Ventanas canton, and this “ventanilla” loan is dedicated to work in agriculture and livestock.

Luisa del Rosario makes a living from planting corn, rice, and pigeon peas. She also makes a living by raising pigs and chickens. She asks for the loan to buy urea, seeds, insecticides, week killer and a fumigation pump.

With the help of the loan she will be able to buy the fertilizers and the pump to fumigate the crops. Her dream is to be able to give her children a chance to study so that they may become professionals.

In her free time she likes to go to church and listen to the word of God.
