Jenny Patricia's story

Jenny Patricia is 37 years old, in a common-law relationship, and has five children. She lives with her husband and children in the canton of Ventanas in Los Ríos Province.

The Communal Bank “Dulce Sentimiento” (Sweet Sentiment) is located in the neighborhood of Caimito II in the parish of Puerto Pechiche, canton of Pueblo Viejo. The members of the Communal Bank are short-cycle farmers who grow corn, rice, and pigeon peas.

Jenny Patricia is a farmer who grows corn, rice, and pigeon peas. Her purchases and sales are conducted in the canton of Ventanas. Jenny is requesting a loan in order to buy seeds, farming supplies, urea, herbicide, fertilizers, and weed killers so that she can keep her crops in good condition.

This loan will be a great help because she will be able to buy what she needs for planting. The money from her previous loan was used to buy seeds and fertilizers. Her family’s situation has improved because she now earns a little bit more to provide for their well-being. She is doing better in her work since she has been able to increase production. Her income has improved now that she generates more revenue from the sale of her products.

Her dream is to buy a piece of farming equipment. In her free time, Jenny Patricia enjoys listening to music.
