Zoila Idalia's story

Zoila is 49 years old and is in a common-law relationship. She has 5 children and lives with them and her spouse in the city of Ventanas in the province of Los Ríos. The communal bank Bendición de Dios is located in the rural community of Rancho Grande of the Puerto Pechiche parish. They work in agriculture and livestock. Zoila works in agriculture, growing corn and beans, and also works raising animals such as hens, ducks and pigs. She is asking for this loan to buy urea, insecticide, insect repellent, animal feed and vaccines for the pigs. With the help of this loan she will be able to buy necessary inputs for agriculture. She makes her purchases in Ventanas. Her dream is to continue to get ahead, thanks to the loans that the cooperative provides to the farmers to further their progress. The challenge she faces is a lack of working capital. She spends her free time relaxing.
