Rosa Irlanda's story

Rosa is 30 years old. She is in a common-law marriage and has three children. She lives with her husband and children in Ventanas Canton, Los Ríos province. She is a member of the San Juan Communal Bank, located in the San Francisco precinct in San Juan parish. The members are engaged in farming.

Rosa has been growing cacao for three years. She conducts her purchases and sales in San Juan. She is requesting the loan to purchase cacao plants, manure, fertilizers, and fungicides for crop care. Her dream is to purchase a piece of land and build a house. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, listening to music, and playing a bit of sports.
