A loan of $1,200 helped to buy seeds, herbicides, fertilizers and urea.


Diana Elizabeth's story

Diana is 23 years old. She is single and she has three children. She lives with her children in the Ventanas canton in Los Ríos province. The Cevallos Communal Bank is located in the neighborhood of San Francisco which belongs to the San Juan de Pueblo Viejo parish. The members work in agriculture.

Diana works in agriculture planting corn and soy. She also works raising animals like chickens and pigs. She is requesting the loan to buy seeds, herbicides, fertilizers and urea. With the support of the loan she will be able to buy what is necessary for the crops. She will carry out the purchases and the sales in San Juan and in Ventanas.

Her dream is to buy land to plant more and to obtain better profits. The challenges that she faces are the lack of money and the competition.

In her free time she likes to play sports.
