Bertha
Every 15 days, the members of the Communal Bank “Con Amor Y Fe Hacia el Desarrollo” (Toward Development with Love and Faith) gather together in Los Bajos de Montecristi. This city is known for a great diversity of traditional products such as straw hats that are famous both inside and outside of the country.


Sra. Bertha is married and has three children, two of whom are adults and studying at the university. The youngest is still in high school. Bertha is very happy because they all still live at home.


She sells clothing, especially children’s clothes because she likes these types of garments and says that they are more popular than other types of apparel. Her strategy is to sell door to door. She started with very little and now her business has grown tremendously because she has many orders.


Bertha will use this loan to buy more merchandise, especially girls’ dresses because she has several orders for these items. She has participated in 46 loan cycles with her Communal Bank and is very pleased. Her goal is to provide her children with a good education.
