Who have we helped so far?
We recently helped fund a loan for Norma Piedad Tocta Moposita to buy fertilizer, urea, and liquid fertilizers.
Norma Piedad is 26 years old and lives with her partner of common law marriage and her children. She lives in Ventanas canton in the province of Los Ríos.
The ‘Ciudadela Los Ángeles’ community bank is located in Los Ángeles, in Ventanas canton. The members of the bank grow corn and rice.
Norma Piedad makes a living growing corn and rice. She buys her products in Ventanas and sells them in the market in Ventanas and also in the fairs that are close by.
She requested the loan to buy fertilizer, urea and liquid fertilizers to plant corn and rice. The loan helped her to increase her profits used for family consumption and for investment. Her dream is to have her own business and to buy a farm.
She likes to work in the fields and to spend time with her family.
