A loan of $1,000 helped to buy inputs, fertilizer and manure.


Lucrecia Genoveva's story

Lucrecia is 27 years old. She is single and does not have children. She lives with her family in the city of Ventanas, De Los Rios province. She is a member of the Bruniquilde communal bank, which is located in the rural community of Calabi in the canton of Ventanas. The members make their living doing agricultural work.

Lucrecia makes her living in agriculture, planting corn. She is applying for a loan to buy inputs, fertilizers and manure. She will make the purchases in the city of Ventanas every two weeks. With the help of the loan, she will be able to buy the inputs.

She faces challenges such as how to get ahead for the wellbeing of her family. Her dream is to have money to be able to continue buying land for planting. In her free time, she likes to participate in community parties.
