Marlene Mercedes's story

Marlene is 35 years old and lives with her common-law husband and 3 children. She lives in the city of Ventanas in the Provincia De Los Rios.
The community bank Bendición de Dios is located in the Rancho Grande precinct of the parish of Puerto Pechiche The members do agricultural and livestock work.
Marlene works in agriculture and grows corn and rice, and also works raising animals such as chickens, ducks, pigs, and turkeys. She is requesting a loan to buy urea, insecticides, and vaccinations for the pigs.
With the help of the loan, she will be able to buy what she needs for farming. She will make the purchases in Ventanas. Her dream is to be successful thanks to the loan that we award to the cooperative. The challenge is not having her own capital. She spends her free time with her children.
