Tatiana Lorena
In the city of Manta's Eloy Alfaro parish every 15 days, the “Mujeres Con Esperanza” (Women with Hope) Communal Bank meets. The location is known for its beautiful beaches which are visited in all seasons of the year by national and foreign tourists. This is one of the most important ports in the country and of America, and it's located on the shores of the Pacific Ocean.

Here resides Tatiana, who is 37 years old and married, with 4 children from this union, ages 21, 18, 12, and 9. The 2 youngest still live with her and study in school. Her husband is a wholesale seafood merchant.

Tatiana also sells seafood in her home; shrimp, a variety of fish, conch, prawns, squid, oysters, crab, etc. She cleans the seafood and sometimes delivers them to the customer. She works every day from 8:00 until 11:00 am. Tatiana buys her products from her husband who charges her wholesale or a special price. She has been doing this for 18 years, and it is going very well since she has many fixed customers.

This loan will be used to buy shrimp, fish, conch, oysters, prawns, crabs, squid, etc. Tatiana is in her 6th loan cycle with the Communal Bank and she is grateful because the interest rates are very low.

Her dream is to own a car.
