In the city of Portoviejo, the capital of Manabí, known for many years as the city of the royal tamarinds, the members of the Libertad #1 communal bank meet every two weeks.


Aura has been a member of the Libertad #1 communal bank for eight years. She is very pleased that thanks to the loans she has received from the Fundación Espoir, she has been able to move her family forward. She is 78 years old, a widow and she has four children who are now adults. Two of them still live with her and one of her children is sick.


In addition to being a great mother and housewife, she also sells food. She has a stall in the Portoviejo market preparing delicious meals. Her customers always order these regional dishes: el caldo de pata, la guatita, el caldo y seco de gallina ( dishes made with various parts of cow like the feet and stomach and chicken), along with other dishes. She prepares these meals with lots of love. Aura works everyday from 8am to 11pm. Her daughter helps her with the business. She says that her business has been open for many years now and that her customers prefer her food because of her food’s flavor.


This loan will be used to buy rice, chickens, soft drinks and other products and ingredients needed for her delicious dishes. Her dream is that her son will be healed and he will have good health.
