Maria Corina's story

María is 41 years old and married. She has 3 children, and she lives with her husband and children in Guaranda, in Bolívar Province.

The "Wari Art and Culture" solidarity group is located in the community of Larkaloma, 45 minutes away from the office. It is made up of 11 members.

María works in agriculture, planting potatoes and corn, and also producing milk and cheese. She has cows, chickens and guinea pigs.

She is requesting the loan to buy seeds, liquid weedkiller, fertilizers, fungicides, and balanced feed for her animals. With the help of the loan, she will be able to save her potato and corn crops. She makes her purchases and sales in Guaranda twice a month.

Her dream is to have a little money to buy more land, in order to continue farming. The challenges she faces include transportation and the competition.

She likes to celebrate traditions such as local festivals.
