Adriana Jessenia
Sra. Adriana is a young mother with three children. She is 24 years old and a member of the Communal Bank “Los Corrales” (The Corrals) in Manabí Province. In this area, most of the residents work in different factories, including fish processing and cabinet making.


Adriana and her husband have had to overcome a bad situation, mostly related to financial troubles. One day she decided to start an informal business selling clothing in addition to tackling her duties as a homemaker. She generates sales by taking orders and then travels in order to buy directly from the distributors. Her customers live near her home and she has been selling for three years. In addition, she started another business a year ago selling fast food such as hot dogs, hamburgers, and fried foods. Adriana enjoys working and is doing well in all of her ventures.


With this new loan, she plans to invest in her two businesses so that she can expand and continue making sales. She has maintained a relationship with her husband for nine years. He earns a living by driving a tanker truck throughout the region. Her dream is to purchase a vehicle so that she can travel with her merchandise since it is difficult to take her products with her on the bus. Adriana is sure that she can achieve this goal since having her own car will allow her to help her husband.
