Geoconda Jacinta
The “Mujeres con Esperanza” (Hopeful Women) communal bank meets every two weeks in Portoviejo, capital of Manabí, known for many years as the City of the Royal Tamarinds because of the great amount of this fruit that existed here back then.

We found Geoconda, 40, here. She was in a relationship several years ago that produced four children who are 19, 17, 16 and 13 years of age. The oldest of them is in the university and the last three are in high school; they all live at home.

During the morning she works at a "cevichería" (seafood cocktail shop) but on Saturday and Sunday evenings she tends to her own business: she has a hotdog and hamburger stand. She tells us that this is an honest way to earn a living that she’s been doing for the last three years and that has made it possible for her to support her family.

She will use this loan to buy bread, meat, sausages and other ingredients for her business. She’s been in the communal bank for the last three years and thanks to the initial loan she was able to open her business. Her dream is to own a restaurant.

En la ciudad de Portoviejo, capital de Manabí conocida desde hace muchos años como la ciudad de los reales tamarindos, por la gran cantidad de este fruto que había en aquella época, se reúnen cada quince días las socias del Banco Comunal Mujeres Con Esperanza.

En este lugar encontramos a la señora Geoconda, tiene 40 años de edad, hace varios años tuvo una relación y de esta relación tiene cuatro hijos de 19, 17, 16 y 13 años de edad, el mayor de ellos está en Universidad y los tres restantes están en colegio, todos viven en su casa.

Ella trabaja en las mañanas en una cevicheria pero en las noches de los días sábados, domingos y días de feria atiende su propio negocio, tiene una carreta en la que vende hot dog y hamburguesas. Nos cuenta que esta es una forma honesta de ganarse la vida y que esto lo viene realizando desde hace tres años y que le ha servido para poder sacar adelante a su familia.

Este crédito lo va a emplear en comprar pan, carne, salchichas y otros ingredientes para su negocio. Está en el Banco Comunal desde hace tres años y gracias al primer crédito puso su negocio. Su sueño es tener su restaurante.
