Diana Del Pilar's story

27-year old Diana del Pilar lives with her partner and children in the canton of Ventanas, Los Ríos Province. She is a member of the Victoria communal bank located in the Pantano neighbourhood which is part of Ventanas. The members work in agriculture and animal husbandry. Diana del Pilar grows corn and rice. She is seeking a loan to buy fertilizer for her crops and to lease land. She will make her purchases in Ventanas at the Franco store. Her dream is to improve her fields and production so she can have a better standard of living. She also wants to buy a car. The biggest challenge Diana has to overcome is climate-related problems. In her free time she enjoys being with her family and playing sports.
