Guaranda, Ecuador / Livestock

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


Maria Victoria's story

Maria is 44 years old, single and she has three children who are 14, 11 and 9 years old. She lives with her children in the city of Guaranda in Bolívar Province.

The “Tagma Rumiñahui” communal bank is made up of 14 members and is almost 25 minutes from the San Simón office. The members work in agriculture and livestock breeding.

Maria works raising and selling chickens as well as growing potatoes. She is requesting the loan to buy manure, seeds, fertilizer and balanced feed for the animals. With the support of the loan she will be able to preserve her capital and put the money from the loan to work instead.

Maria’s dream is to always have work in order to give her children an education. The challenge that she faces is transportation.

In her free time she likes to talk with her children and help them do homework.
