Adita Mariana
In the city of Portoviejo, the capital city of Manabi, the members of the communal bank named “Women September 13" meets every two weeks. The city was known many years ago as the city of the royal tamarinds, for the great quantities of these fruit during those times.

Here we meet Adita. She is 48 years old and she is divorced, but from that relationship she has six children. Four of them are grown and two are 16 and 14 years of age and they are in school. Five of her children still live at home.

She has a bar in her house and she sells alcoholic drinks, soft drinks, juices, beers, and snacks such as empanadas, fried fish, and other pre-made foods. She works the last three days of the week with her children's help, opening for business from 2pm until 10pm. She says that she has eight years in the business and thank God that it has gone fairly well. Through it she has been supporting her children.

This loan will be used to purchase soft drinks, bottled water, beer, and snacks. She has been a member of her communal bank for three years and she enjoys taking part for the support provided by the organization.

Her dream is to have a large business.
