A loan of $1,000 helped to buy corn seeds and natural and chemical fertilizer to care for and treat the land.

Rosa's story

Rosa is 43 years old. She is a responsible, happy, supportive, charismatic and above all hardworking person who wants to get ahead more every day. Rosa lives with her mother in Pelileo, a rural parish of the city of Ambato. Rosa is a farmer. She lives the country, since she has lived with her mother her whole life, working in farming.

Rosa asked for a loan from FODEMI to invest in buying corn seeds and to buy natural and chemical fertilizer to care fore and treat the land. It is time to plant again and it needs agronomic maintenance. This investment will help Rosa to make more income, which will help with the household budget.

Rosa dreams of having a bigger plot of land where she can keep planting vegetables and legumes and be able to raise cattle to create jobs and help people who need it the most, and above all improve the quality of life of the whole family.
