Rosa Yolanda
Every two weeks, the members of the "Av. Del Ejército" community bank meet in 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 51 year-old Rosa. Rosa is married but currently separated. She has four children who are already grown up. She lives with a 10 year-old grandchild who is her life and who is studying at elementary school. Rosa has been a member of her community bank for five years and she likes the way it works.

Rosa has a cart from which she sells roasted chicken wings, fried pork rinds and 'fritadas' (a traditional fried pork dish). She also sells cakes, colas and 'tostadas' (fried tortillas). She works every day from 6.30am to 9.00am opposite a school, then from 3.00pm to 6.00pm from her home. She tells us that she has been in this business for several years and she has a lot of customers.

Rosa will use this loan to buy the products she needs to make her food. Her dreams are to own her own home since she currently rents.
