Diana Tamara's story

Diana is 25 years old, is in a common law marriage and has two children. She lives with her partner and children in the city of Ventanas in the province of Los Ríos. She is a member of the “25 de Febrero” [February 25] Communal Bank, which is located in the Guabito precinct of the parish of Zapotal, in Ventanas Canton. She works in agriculture, including corn and cacao. She also works raising animals such as chickens and pigs.

Diana is requesting this loan to buy urea, liquid pesticide and insecticide. With the help of the loan she will be able to buy what she needs to better care for her crops and animals. She buys her supplies monthly in Ventanas. Her dream is to work very hard so that her harvest is very good and she can pay for the needs of her family. The challenge she faces every day in her work is competition, and in her family, it is to free them of worries and give her children everything they deserve. In her free time she likes to read and see the traditional culture and festivals of her community.
