Yadira Graciela
Every fortnight the members of the 'Nueva Portoviejo' community bank meet in the Nueva Portoviejo district of the city of Portoviejo, the capital of Manabí, which has been known for many years as the city of the royal tamarind trees.

Here we meet 31 year-old Yadira who is married and has two children, aged 4 and 2, who are the light of her life. Yadira competed in a haute couture competition at province level this year and she won first place.

Yadira has a small dressmaking workshop where she has been sewing all kinds of clothes (15th birthday dresses, bridal gowns, etc.) for many years. However, she says that she loves making children's clothes. She works on orders from individuals and also makes clothes for a store in the city center. She works with the help of another person who she pays a monthly salary.

Yadira has been a member of her community bank for four years and she is very happy because it has helped her a lot. She will use this new loan to buy fabric and other materials for her dressmaking business. Her dreams are to have a bigger workshop in the city center where she can also sell her clothes.

En la ciudadela Nueva Portoviejo de la ciudad de Portoviejo, capital de Manabí conocida desde hace muchos años como la ciudad de los reales tamarindos, se reúnen cada quince días las socias del Banco Comunal Nueva Portoviejo.

Encontramos a la señora Yadira, tiene 31 años de edad, está casada y tiene dos hijos de cuatro y dos años que son la luz de su vida comenta. Ella participo en un concurso de alta costura a nivel provincial en este año en el que logro el primer lugar.

Tiene un pequeño taller de costura donde desde hace muchos años se dedica a coser ropa de todo tipo de ropa (vestidos quinceañeras, de novias, y otras). Pero dice que le encanta hacer ropa para niños, trabaja a base de pedidos de personas particulares y también elabora ropa para un almacén en el centro de la ciudad, trabaja con la ayuda de una persona a la cual le paga un sueldo mensual.

Está en el Banco Comunal cuatro años y está muy contenta ya que le han ayudado mucho. Este nuevo crédito lo va utilizar para comprar telas y otros materiales para la costura. Sus sueños son tener un taller más grande y un almacén en el centro de la ciudad donde también pueda vender sus obras.
