Beata Narcisa De Jesus
Beata Narcisa is a member of the Umiña community bank located on the Pacific coast province of Manabí. This fishing port is a major exporter of Tuna to different parts of the world since it was the first one dedicated to that type of fish. Narcisa is a native of Manta and is a responsible woman dedicated to her job. She is 54 years old and maintains a stable home with four children. Her eldest son is 30 years old. Narcisa works at a fish factory and aside from this also makes a living selling clothing by informally visiting clients at their homes. She brings in her merchandise from the city of Guayaquil at a low price, buying it at wholesale so she can obtain better profits. She gave us an example of how much she is benefiting from Kiva's help by being able to go and buy from the distributors because for every $12 she spends she doubles her profit with each pant she sells. She has to keep in mind the costs of the trip that she has to make in order to find good merchandise. With this new loan, she plans to invest in the purchase of clothes for Mother's Day since that month is a good one for sales. Narcisa's dream is to have a food stand selling ceviche (popular fish dish) and sandwiches.
