Pastora Genedi
The 'Esperanza Para Superar' community bank meets every two weeks in the beautiful seaside resort of San Jacinto, surrounded by a beautiful beach where the Portoviejo river meets the sea. This place is visited by many national and international tourists.

Pastora has been a member of the community bank for two years and she likes the bank because of the reliability of her companions. She is very grateful to Fundación Espoir for the support which they have given her to help her get ahead. Pastora is 48 years old and has been married for 30 years. From this beautiful marriage she has four children who are all grown up and independent. Only one daughter lives with her, together with her two small children. Her husband is a merchant.

Pastora buys and sells fish together with her husband. He gets up very early every morning and goes to the beach where the fishermen arrive in their skiffs and canoes, bringing with them the fruit of their labor. They hand over their goods which Pastora's husband then takes home so that Pastora can help him to clean them and then resell them to traders who take the fish to Quito.

This loan will be used to buy fish since their money is invested and they need capital to be able to stock up and not leave her customers dissatisfied.

Her dream is to be have a bigger, better house.
