Angela Gregoria
Every two weeks, the members of the 'Unión y Solidaridad' (Union and Solidarity) community bank meet in San Pablo parish, in the city of Portoviejo. Portoviejo is the capital of Manabí and it has been known for many years as the City of the Royal Tamarind Trees.

Here we meet 44 year-old Angela who lives with her common-law husband and has three children. Two of her children are already grown up but her youngest (daughter) is 13 and still in school. Angela's eldest son is disabled and lives with her, as does her youngest daughter. Her husband is a construction worker.

Angela has a general store in her home where she sells rice, sugar, oil, detergents, general goods and Avon products (beauty products, cosmetics, perfumes and ladies' accessories). She works every day, from 7.00am to 8.00pm and sometimes until later. Her children help her in her work. She tells us that she has been in her business for six years and it has done very well.

Angela will use this loan to further stock her store. She will buy rice, sugar, oil, detergents, cold meats and general goods. She has been a member of her community bank for eight loan cycles and she likes the repayment terms.

Angela's dream is to further expand her business.
