A loan of $800 helped to buy fertilizer, compost, insecticide to avoid pests, and balanced feed for fish.

Viviana Vanessa's story

Viviana, age 24, is in a common-law marriage and has one child. She lives with her husband and son in the Recinto Terrenal, which is in the Pueblo Viejo canton in the Los Ríos province.

She belongs to the Terrenal communal bank in the Recinto Terrenal in the Pueblo Viejo canton. The people work in agriculture and with livestock.

Viviana grows corn, and she has a trout farm. With the loan she will be able to buy supplies like fertilizers, compost, insecticides to avoid pests, and balanced feed for the fish. She makes her purchases in the city of Pueblo Viejo.

Her dream is to have money so that her son can get an education and become a good professional. In her free time she likes to sew, to embroider, and to knit.
