Zoila Aracely's story

Zoila, 21, is single and has two children; she lives with the father and children in Ventanas Canton, Los Ríos Province. She’s a member of the “Virgen de Guadalupe” communal bank located in Puerto Pechinche Canton belonging to Pueblo Viejo Canton. This communal bank works in agriculture and animal husbandry.

Zoila works growing corn and raising chickens. She’s requesting the loan to be able to buy supplies for the crops and to pay land rental fees. Her purchases take place in Ventanas Canton, often at Agripac. Her dream is to improve her crops. The challenge she faces is battling the ‘cinta roja’ [a fungal plague] infestation. In her free time she enjoys selling clothes via catalog and getting together with her friends.
