The members of the rural communal bank VRC 27 DE MAYO work in agriculture. They all live in the area in the precinct of Cadial. They were practically raised in this area. The majority of them work in agriculture or livestock.
Ruth Marisol works in agriculture, cultivating corn and pigeon peas. She is requesting the loan to buy urea, insecticides, liquid weed killer and Ranger (herbicide). With the help of the loan, she will buy what is necessary for the crops.
She will make her purchases and sales in Ventanas.
Her dream is to buy land to get ahead and to provide her children with education. In her free time, she likes to watch television and listen to music.

She changed communal banks due to problems with some of the members.
