A loan of $800 helped purchase seed potatoes, chickens, cows, fertilizers and urea, and herbicides.


Hilda Lucia's story

Hilda is 35 years old, married, and lives in Guaranda, in Bolívar province. She lives with her husband and three children.

The Art and Culture Communal Bank "Wari" is located in the community of Larkaloma, about 45 minutes from the office, and is comprised of eleven members.

Hilda works in agriculture, planting potatoes and raising cattle and chickens.

She is requesting this loan to purchase seed potatoes, cows and chickens, fertilizers and urea, and liquid herbicides, such that she can have her own business. She does her buying and selling in Guaranda on a weekly basis.

Her dream is to have her own vehicle, since many of the challenges she faces on a daily basis are due to the poor means of travel. In her spare time, she weaves wool clothing.
