Norma Germania's story

Norma is 34 years old. She lives in free union with her husband and their children, ages 15, 13, and 9. She lives in Ventanas canton in the province of Los Rios.

The solidarity group is called Asociación Montubios Ventanilla Norte. It is located in the North Ventanilla district, which belongs to the Ventanas canton. It works with agricultural and livestock raising activities.

Norma has worked in agriculture, planting corn and rice, for several years, and she makes fast food. She buys her supplies in the Montenegro store in Ventanas, and she sells her products in the market in the same place.

The loan that she has applied for is to purchase compost and fertilizers to plant corn and rice. The loan will help her to increase her income for the use of her family and to invest. Her dream is to prosper in agriculture and to raise her family.

She likes to work with her family.
