A loan of $775 helped to pay for labor.

Acila Mary's story

The San Pedro de Pueblo loan group meets every two weeks in the parish of Pueblo Nuevo in the Canton of Santa Ana, a place with honest people who are dedicated to the jobs in the countryside and to ranching. It is full of beautiful country landscapes and kind people.

Acilia, 46, lives here. She is in a civil union and has six children. Three are adults and the others are 16, 13, and 11. These three are in school. Her husband is a farmer.

Alicia is requesting this loan on behalf of her husband, who works as a farmer. He always plants rice, corn, and vegetables. She is in charge of obtaining loans to finance the crops while her husband works the land with two other people who are paid for their work. They plant all year around and depend on irrigation pumps for their work. Currently, it is the fruit harvesting season, which is why they need the loan.

This loan is going to be used to pay laborers for their work in harvesting the crops. This is her seventh loan cycle with the loan group, and she likes it because they help with the loans. Her dream is for her and her loved ones to be in good health.
