Gissella Patricia's story

In San Ignacio of the Colon territory in the city of Portoviejo, a place known for hardworking people and dedicated to agriculture and cattle raising, every 15 days the members of Grupo De Crédito 3 De Septiembre meet. This is where Gissella lives. She is 23 years old and married, and from this marriage she has two daughters ages 8 and 4 that study in elementary and preschool classes. Her husband is a farmer.

Gissella is a very good wife that is requesting the loan so her husband can utilize it in his work. He earns a living in agriculture and the sale of his products. He has crops in every season of the year, and he currently has planted corn, peanuts, tomatoes, peppers, fruits and vegetables. He uses pumps to carry water to all of his crops, and this how he supports himself all year, and gives what is necessary to his family. Currently he is getting ready to harvest the crops he planted at the beginning of the year.

This loan is to pay for the manual labor for the harvest of the fruit, and for seeds to plant again. Gissella has been in the Grupo De Crédito for 4 years, and she likes it because it helps her husband get ahead with the loans. Their dream is to give the best to their family.
