Mirian Janeth's story

Mirian is 35 years old, married and has three children. She lives with her husband Mina de Piedra area of the Ventanas canton, in Los Ríos province.

Mirian is a member of the "30 de Noviembre" communal bank in the Mina de Piedra area, which is part of the Ventanas canton. The people here work in the agricultural and livestock sectors.

Mirian makes a living sowing corn and raising hens. She is applying for this loan to pay the rent on her land and to buy fertilisers for her crops, in order to avoid plagues and diseases. Mirian will make her purchases in Montenegro, in Ventanas. Her dream is to improve crop production. The challenge that she faces is tackling weeds. In her free time, Mirian likes to go out walking.
