Zoila is a member of the Communal Bank “Nuevos Horizontes” (New Horizons), which is about 40 minutes away from the community of Santa Martha in the canton of Guaranda.

Zoila is a farmer who grows blackberries and “naranjillas”. She also raises chickens to sell. Zoila is requesting a loan in order to buy compost, fertilizers, balanced feed, urea, and organic matter. Her purchases and sales are conducted in Guaranda every 15 days. With the help of this loan, she will be able to buy supplies and feed for her chickens. The challenges she faces include dealing with bad weather and pests.

Zoila dreams of increasing the quantity of products that she can sell. In her free time, she likes to organize walks with her family.
