A loan of $600 helped to buy fertilizers, manure, insecticides and nutritionally-balanced animal feed.

Teresa Leovaldina's story

Teresa is 25 years old and lives with her partner and three children in Desvió de los Amarillos, in Ventanas canton, in Los Ríos province.

Teresa is a member of the 'Pequeños Agricultores' community bank which is located in Desvió de los Amarillos, in Ventanas canton. The members of this group farm and raise livestock.

Teresa farms corn and raises farmyard animals such as hens and pigs. She will use her loan to buy supplies such as fertilizers, manure, insecticides to protect against pests and diseases, and nutritionally-balanced feed for her animals. She makes her purchases in the city of Ventanas.

Teresa's dream is to buy a plot of land. She really enjoys celebrating local patron saint festivals.
