Rosa Apolonia's story

Rosa, 51, is in a common-law relationship and has seven children. She lives with her husband and children in the precinct of Desvió de los Amarillos in Ventanas Canton, Los Ríos Province. She belongs to Pequeños Agricultores Communal Bank in Desvió de los Amarillos in Ventanas Canton. The bank works in agriculture and livestock.

Rosa makes a living in agriculture growing corn and raising animals like chickens and pigs. With the loan she'll be able to buy supplies: fertilizer, manure, insecticide to avoid pests and disease, and balanced feed for the animals. She makes her purchases in the city of Ventanas.

Her dream is to buy a plot of land to continue planting. She very much likes to celebrate the patron saint of the area.
