Rina Marisol
Rina is an outstanding and very responsible member of the "Av. Del Ejército" ("Army Avenue") communal bank. She works as a businessperson; for the past two years, she has operated telephone call booths, which are managed by her nephew. At the same time, she also runs a restaurant, which she has operated for the past 10 years in the bus station of the city of Portoviejo. Her two businesses are next to each other, and she starts work there very early in the morning.

Rina is a woman who loves to work, and she does not mind all the sacrifices she has to make to maintain her businesses. At 4 in the morning, she goes to the city's central market to buy everything she needs for her restaurant, and at 7, she is already serving breakfast to her customers. Once breakfast is over, she begins preparing the food for lunch, and at 5 in the evening she ends her workday.

Rina has been a member of her communal bank for two loan cycles, and she has been able to maintain her businesses with the loans. With this new loan, she will invest in buying products such as fruits, beans, meats, lunch meat, and other grocery items to prepare the various foods she offers her customers. She also wants to invest in a new business: a snack bar where she can sell fruit smoothies and toasted sandwiches in the same area where she has her other two businesses.

Rina reports that everything she does is for the well-being of her children; one daughter is studying at the university, and her other children are with their father in Quito. Her dream is to have a farm and enjoy life.
