A loan of $800 helped to buy urea, liquid weed killer, and insecticides.


Rosa Piedad's story

Rosa is 54 years old and in a common-law relationship with her husband. They have one child and live in the city of Ventanas, Los Ríos Province.

The Communal Bank “Solidaria” is located in the neighborhood of San Gabriel in the canton of Ventanas. The members are farmers and ranchers.

Rosa is a farmer who grows corn and rice. She is requesting a loan in order to buy urea, liquid weed killer, and insecticides. Rosa switched over into this line of work and now she can focus more on her crops with the help of this loan.

The loan will help her buy what she needs for her farming activities. Her purchases are conducted in Ventanas. Rosa’s dream is to have her own business of selling pigs. The challenges she faces include dealing with pests and maintaining her crops.

In her free time, Rosa enjoys cooking.
