The members of the Las Américas Communal Bank meet every 15 days in the city of Portoviejo, capital of Manabí, which has been known for many years as the city of los reales tamarindos ["Reales Tamarindos" is the name of Portoviejo's soccer stadium and airport].

There you will find Ms. Gina, who is 32 years old and in a common-law marriage. She and her husband have 3 children together, who are 16, 10, and 9 years old. The oldest is in high school and the younger two are also in school. Her husband is a merchant.

Gina and her husband work together selling fish. Three days a week, they travel in her husband's car to Crucita, where they buy fish that they then bring to other cities to sell. The cantons of Pinchincha, El Empalme, and Quevedo are among the cities that they visit every week. They deliver both wholesale and retail. On these days, they work from 5 AM until 9 PM, when they return home. Gina says that they have been covering this route for four years and that thanks to God, they have been doing well.

This loan is to buy fish and bring them to the aforementioned cities. Gina has been in the communal bank for 9 cycles and she likes it for the ease of obtaining credit. Her dream is to have another car a little bit bigger than the one they have now.
