A loan of $800 helped to buy seeds, fertilizer for her crops and balanced feed for her animals.


Maria Agustina's story

María is 55 years old, married, and has one son. She lives with her husband in the city of Guaranda in the province of Bolívar.

The Tagma Rumiñahui communal bank is made up of 14 members and is located about 25 minutes from the San Simón office of the field partner. The members work in agriculture and raising cattle.

María works growing potatoes and corn, as well as raising and selling chickens, guinea pigs and pigs.

She is requesting a loan to buy seeds, fertilizer for her crops and balanced feed for her animals. With the loan she is going to grow, raise and sell her products to earn more money. Her dream is to have enough money to give her son a profession. In her free time she likes to go for walks with her son and talk.
