María Agusta De La Fé
In Portoviejo’s outskirts, a beautiful city with a pleasant climate and a rich variety of typical regional dishes, we find the Los Ángeles (Angels) communal bank which meets every two weeks.

María has been a member of this communal bank since its inception. She says she enjoys it because she always gets the loans on time and problem-free. She is very grateful to Fundación Espoir because it has helped her in difficult times. She has been in a common law union for 30 years and has three children all of whom are adults but still live at home.

She is a clothing merchant but also sells bedspreads because, as she tells us, they sell well and produce good profits. She sells door-to-door but also from home. She works three or four days a week about five hours a day. She buys the merchandise once a month in Guayaquil because it is less expensive there.

This new loan will be used to buy bed sheets and women’s clothing because she has a lot of pending orders to fill.

Her wish is to buy a car so that she can go buy and sell her merchandise much more quickly.

En las afueras de Portoviejo, ciudad hermosa con un clima agradable y con una rica variedad de platos típicos. Encontramos el Banco Comunal Los Ángeles que se reúnen cada quince días.

La señora María esta en en el Banco Comunal desde sus inicios, dice que le gusta porque siempre recibe los créditos a tiempo y sin ningún problema. Esta muy agradecida con la Fundación Espoir porque le han ayudado en momentos difíciles. Mantiene una relación de unión libre hace 30 años, de la cual procreo 3 hijos los mismos que ya son mayores de edad, pero que aun viven en su casa.

Se dedica al comercio de ropa de todo tipo, además vende sobrecamas ya que según nos cuenta se venden mucho y deja buenas ganancias. Su forma de venta es puerta a puerta, pero también vende en su casa. Trabaja tres o cuatro días a la semana unas cinco horas por día. La mercadería la compra una vez al mes en Guayaquil por que allá salen mas baratas.

Este nuevo credito lo va a utilizar para comprar sabanas y ropa de mujer ya que tiene muchos pedidos.

Su deseo es comprar un carro para ir a comprar y vender su mercadería mucho mas rápido.
