Ramona
The Junín communal bank, named after the city it meets in every two weeks, gathers in the home of one of its members. One can notice that this is a group of quite charismatic members that are ready to collaborate which was just right for us to begin our interviews. Our first interviewee was Ramonita.

Ramonita, 60, has a small food business, an eatery where she works daily taking care of regular customers. She is happy with this business and has done well with it better, in fact, than she had expected.

She was widowed and was left in the company of her children who are now her strength to continue forward.
Her business is in her home and she is on her feet from 5am on preparing meals; she offers breakfast and lunch and in the evening she offers corn tortillas with coffee. Her customers are aware of this and seek her out because her dishes are so tasty.

She will use the new funds received to buy groceries and other products needed to prepare her dishes. She tells us that she must travel all the way to the city of Portoviejo to go to the central market and stock up on everything.
