Purisima Del Rocio's story

Purisima is 39 years old. She lives in a free union relationship and has three children. She lives with her husband and their children in the Desvió precinct of Los Amarillos, which belongs to the Ventanas canton in the province of Los Rios.

She belongs to the solidarity group "Pequeños Agricultores" (Small Farmers), which is located in the Desvió precinct in Los Amarillos, which is part of the Ventanas canton. It works with agricultural and livestock-raising activities.

Purisima works in agriculture, planting corn and raising barnyard animals such as chickens and pigs. With the loan, she will be able to buy supplies such as fertilizer, compost, and insecticides to avoid pests and diseases, as well as balanced feed for the animals. She makes her purchases in the city of Ventanas.

Her dream is to obtain a parcel of land to continue planting. She very much likes to celebrate the fiestas of the patron saint of the district and the end of the year.
