The members of the “27 de Mayo” (May 27th) communal bank work in agriculture and all live in the Recinto Cadial sector; they've practically been raised there. They work in agriculture and animal husbandry for the most part.

She’s asking for the loan to buy seeds, Ranger [brand of herbicide], urea, supplies and fertilizer. With support from the loan she will be able to buy manure for agriculture. She faces challenges like infestations and diseases. Her dream is to buy a house. She likes caring for her animals in her free time.
