A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase seeds, fertilizers, and urea.

Sandra Fabiola's story

Sandra is 23 years old, single, and has one child. She lives with her parents and her two-year-old child in the Ventanas canton in the Los Ríos province.

Sandra is a member of the San Juan communal bank, which is located in the neighborhood of San Francisco and part of the parish of San Juan. The members are farmers.

Sandra works growing rice and corn since more than two years back. She buys and sells in Ventanas. She is applying for this loan in order to buy seeds, manure, fertilizers, urea, and herbicides. The loan will be of great help because she can work the land and buy what she needs. Among the challenges she faces on a frequent basis are the competition and pests. Her dream is to have her own land.

In her free time, Sandra enjoys helping her mother.
