Alba De Jesús
Every other week, group members of the Dr. Medardo Cevallos Community Bank get together on Medardo Cevallos Street, in the city of Portoviejo, known as la Ciudad de Los Reales Tamarindos since its colonization.


Mrs. Alba was the founding member of the community bank and she works very hard as its president. She says she likes it because there are always loans available to help with whatever she needs. She is 44 years old, married, and has two children. One child is already grown and the younger one lives with them. Her husband is a salesman.


She has a store in her home on Medardo Cevallos Street and she works every day from 6:30 am until 10:00 pm. She sells everything from tools to school supplies to alcoholic beverages and on Sunday mornings prepares and sells encebollados (a pork chop/onion dish) and in the evenings she sells grilled pork skins. She says that any kind of work that earns money is good and that is why she does it.


This loan is to buy more merchandise to stock her store. Her dream is to have a mini-market.
