Domitila Filadelfia
The “Nueva Ilusion” (New Illusion) communal bank meets every two weeks in Cadí, Colon parish, in the city of Portoviejo, a place renowned for its hard working people who are farmers and cattlemen.

Domitila, 64, has been married for many years. She had five children but one died. She tells us with much sadness that losing her child was the greatest pain she’s ever experienced. Her husband’s a farmer.

She is a housewife but uses some of her time to be a milk merchant. She also has a small chicken farm. She works daily from 6am to receive the milk that’s delivered to her house. Later she and her husband distribute it throughout the sector. As for the chickens, she keeps them for a period of time of two months and then she plucks them and sells them to local stores or by the pound to local residents.

She is a founding member of the communal bank and she likes it because the installments are easy to pay as long as one works with responsibility.

She will use this loan to buy chickens to raise and to pay for the milk which is a weekly expense.

Her dream is to have a large chicken farm in order to become a wholesaler.
