Mariana S. is a member of El Crédito ("The Loan" or "The Good Reputation") Communal Bank. She lives in Misicata, an area known for its beautiful scenery. The people are mainly farmers. Many young people have migrated to other cities in Ecuador or in other countries to help give their families a better future.

Mariana is 32 years old. She is married and has two children, a five-year-old and a three-year-old. This year her elder daughter begins kindergarten. Her husband's work is to make wooden boards and planks, and he is happy since they have their own house.

For two years, Mariana has made potato chips on Mondays and Thursdays. She has steady customers who place weekly orders. The rest of the week, she cleans apartments, a job she has had barely six months. This is her seventh loan with her communal bank. A friend had invited her to become part of this group of very determined and enterprising women. With her new loan, Mariana will buy oil, potatoes, labels, paper bags, etc.

Her goal is to keep growing her business.
