A loan of $600 helped to buy supplies.

Maria Juana's story

Maria is 55 years old, married and has a son.  She lives with her husband and son in Guaranda, within the Bolivar province. 

She is a member of the VRC ALLY ÑAN communal bank, made up of ten members from the same community, located 20 minutes from the office.

Maria sells bricks and also farms and raises corn, barley, and wheat.

She is asking for this loan in order to buy dirt, pots, seeds, urea, and herbicides.  This loan will help here buy what she needs for her plantings and other work.

Her dream is for her business to prosper.  Her challenges are the competition that she faces.  She likes to care for her grandchildren in her spare time.
