Melva Imelda's story

Melva, 34, lives with her partner and four children, aged 15, 13, 10 and 9. She lives in the Mocache Canton in the province of Los Ríos.

The communal bank is called ‘Juntos Triunfaremos’ and is located at number 2 in the John F Kennedy precinct in the Mocache Canton area near Ventanas. Melva works in agriculture and livestock.

She has worked in agriculture for three years, sowing corn and then selling her products in Ventanas and Mocache in the local markets.

She is asking for a loan to buy agricultural supplies to sow corn and rice. The last loan helped her to improve her financial situation. She dreams of providing her children with a good education and to be able to provide for them. She likes her work and looking after the family.
