Ana Carlota
The Aníbal San Andrés communal bank meets every two weeks in Montecristi canton, a place famous for its Panama hats and for being the birthplace of Eloy Alfaro, the “Old Warrior.”

Ana has been a member of the Aníbal San Andrés communal bank for six cycles and is very happy in it because, according to what she tells us, she found much help here and has established good friendships with the other members. She is 42 years old and is a single mother of four children, three adults and a lovely 16-year-old young lady who is in secondary school. All her children still live with her.

She sells fish in Portoviejo’s Municipal Market where she has a small stand. She works Monday through Friday and occasionally on Saturdays. She goes to Manta at 4am to buy fish for later resale in Portoviejo although sometimes she buys from the local wholesalers in the same market. She says that this is a little more expensive than buying in Manta but she saves on transportation costs and on labor. She is open until 3pm or until she sells out her stock. Her best seller is albacore either by the pound or the piece.

This loan is to buy a large umbrella to protect from the sun and the rain since winter is approaching and to buy fish.

Her dream is to have an enclosed locale with more amenities.

EL Banco Comunal Aníbal San Andrés que se reúne cada quince días en el Cantón Montecristi. Lugar de los famosos sombreros de paja toquilla y Cuna de Eloy Alfaro el Viejo Luchador.

La señora Ana es socia del Banco Comunal Aníbal San Andes hace 6 ciclos y esta muy contenta en el ya que según nos cuenta encontró aquí mucha ayuda y ha hecho buenas amistades con las otras socias. Tiene 42 años de edad y es madre soltera de 4 hijos, tres ya mayores de edad y una linda jovencita de 16 años que estudia en el colegio, todos sus hijos viven aun con ella.

Ella vende pescado en el Mercado Municipal de Portoviejo donde tiene un puestito. Trabaja de lunes a viernes y en ciertas ocasiones los sábados. Desde las 4 am ella se va a Manta a comprar el pescado para venderlo en Portoviejo. Aunque a veces mejor compra en el mismo mercado a comerciantes mayoristas, dice que sale un poco más caro que en Manta pero no tiene que gastar en transporte y se evita trabajo, ella vende hasta las 15h00 o hasta que termine lo que tenia, lo que más vende es pescado albacora por libras o en piezas.

Este crédito es para comprar una sombrilla grande para evitar el sol y para la lluvia ya que el invierno esta próximo y para comprar pescado.

Su sueño es tener un local cerrado con más comodidades.
