A loan of $600 helped to buy fertilizers, organic additives, and seeds.

Mariela Maribel's story

Mariela is 22 years old, single, and has no children. She lives with her parents in the Chillanes province of Bolívar.

The communal bank VIRGEN DE BAÑOS is made up of members in the community of Mama Sara de Cerritos, about 30 minutes away from the Cooperative's office.

Mariela works in farming and grows beans, and she also raises cattle. She is asking for this loan in order to buy organic additives for the soil, fertilizers, and seeds. With the help of this credit, she will be able to buy what she needs for her planting.

Her dream is to become independent, and to have her own fields that she can plant, and to finish her studies. In her free time, she likes to go out and enjoy the parties and feast days in her community.
