Mayita Dolores
In the El Progreso neighborhood of the city of Portoviej the community bank Girasoles meets every two weeks. This is a highly populated area on the outskirts of town. It is known as the jail district, since the women's jail of Portoviejo is in that area.

Here we find Mayita. She is 34 years old and in a common law marriage which has resulted in three children, aged 12, 9 and 1. The oldest is in high school and the second child is on elementary schol. Her husband is a bricklayer.

She is a housewife, who in addition to managing her household and her children, is a merchant. She sells sheets and comforters. She works three or four days a week in the morning and at night from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. She doesn't work afternoons, because that is when she has to help her children do their homework. At night, her husband stays with them while she does her sales. She has been doing this activity for four years.

This loan is to buy sheets, comforters and a little bit of clothing that some customers have asked her for. This is her seventh cycle with the community bank and she likes it because she has fun at the meetings.

Her dream is to have a store some day.
