Zolila Rosa
Every fortnight the members of the “Mujeres Trabajadoras” (Hard-Working Women) community bank meet in Rocafuerte canton. This place is known for the delicious desserts and sweets which its residents make and they are known all over the country.

Zoila is a founding member of her community bank. She tells us that she likes it a lot as it has helped her to get ahead in her business. Zoila is 61 years old. She has 8 children from her common-law marriage but she has been separated from her partner for 13 years. Her children are all grown up although two of them still live at home.

Zoila is a saleswoman. She has a grocery store where she sells not only groceries but also sweets which she buys or has sent from Santo Domingo. Her customers love them. She works every day from 6.30am to 7.00pm. She says that she has had her business for several years and, thanks to God, it has done very well.

This loan will be used to buy rice, sugar, tuna, oil, detergents and sweets. Her dreams are to have a much bigger and better-stocked store and for herself and her family to enjoy good health.
