Alicia Fernanda's story

Alicia Fernanda, 28, is single and lives with her parents in Chillanes Province in Bolivar. She belongs to the communal bank Arrayapamba, which comprises 12 members from the same community about 25 minutes from the cooperative's office. The members farm and raise livestock and are merchants.

Alicia Fernanda grows corn, beans, and mulberries and raises pigs, chickens, and cattle. She is applying for a loan to buy seed, fertilizer, insecticide, ranger, and animal feed and to lease pastureland. She buys and sells in Chillanes.

She dreams of having her own house and land. Pests that harm the crops are one of her challenges. In her free time, she likes to visit relatives, go for a walk, and enjoy the local festivals and carnival.
