Maria Maritza's story

María is 24 and single with no children. She lives with her mother in Ventanas Canton in Los Ríos Province. The members of VCR 27 de Mayo work in agriculture and fishing, and all were born and raised in Recinto el Cadial.

María works sowing corn and rice, and also rears chickens to sell. She trades her products at Agroquimicos Briones in Ventana. She is asking for a loan to buy seeds, urea, supplies, fertilisers and chicken food.

She has to face challenges such as infestations and diseases, and a lack of water for irrigation. Her dream is to be able to buy a car for work and to take her family out. In her free time she likes to watch TV and go out with her family.
