Vanessa Elizabeth
The Communal Bank “Ilusiones” (Illusions) meets every fifteen days in the neighborhood of El Progresso in the city of Portoviejo. This marginalized urban area is one of the poorest in the city. It is also known as a prison area since the Women’s Prison of Portoviejo is located here.


Sra. Vanessa is being presented here. She is 27 years old and her husband died three years ago. Since then, she has had to bear all of the expenses of her family and those of her three children (ages 12, 11, and 8). The oldest child is in high school while the remaining children are in elementary school.


Vanessa is a good mother who wants to succeed on behalf of her children. She works Monday through Friday at a candy shop in the central part of the city. On the weekends, she has her own business in which she prepares and sells candies for parties. Vanessa delivers her goods to the owners of an events center that hosts all types of receptions. She operates her business Saturdays and Sundays from 7am to 5pm. This business enables her to have income to support her family.


This loan will be used to buy supplies for making candy. This is her fifth loan cycle with the Communal Bank and she enjoys the loans because they have helped her family move forward.


Her dreams are for her children to have a good education and to see them become good people.
