Edith María
The members of the Las Increíbles (The Unbelievable Ones) communal bank meet every two weeks in the beautiful city of Bahía De Caraquez, known for its beaches, its rich gastronomy and the warmth of its people.

We find Edith, 21, here. She is in a common law relationship and she has two children who are 3 and 2 years of age. Her husband is a merchant.

She is a housewife who, in order to help her husband and family, requested this loan to use it in her husband’s business. He sells large containers of drinking water. He goes out every day on a motorcycle that he has adapted to carry a large amount of water jugs to deliver water to his large number of customers who he has to deliver to every day. He works from 8am until 8pm. Our friend tells us that her husband has had this business for three years now and he has quite a few customers.

The loan she requested is to buy ten water jugs and water for them to store so that the product will be less expensive that way and their profits will be higher. This is her third loan with the communal bank and she likes it because interest rates are low. Her dream is to have her own house because they currently live in her mother’s house.
