Every two weeks, the Para el Futuro de la Mujer (For The Future of Women) communal bank meets in La Pila in the canton of Montecristi. This place is well-known in the province and in the country for its rich traditional culture, and as a place where a wide variety of handcrafts, made by its inhabitants following traditional customs, can be found.

Here we meet Verónica, 29 years old. She is single and lives in her parents' house. She is a very well-prepared woman who with great effort succeeded in finishing college. She has a business degree, and in her business she puts in practice what she learned. She has been in the communal bank for 5 years, and she likes it because the loans are of great help both to her business and to those of her fellow members.

She buys and sells decorations and ceramics. She has a shop in her house in which she sells all kinds of handcrafts. She works every day from 8am to 5pm. She tells us that her best sellers are table centerpieces and decorations for the home. She has been doing this work for 6 years, and it has gone very well for her, since with her work, she could finish her studies. She buys her products from local artisans, since they are the best in the whole province.

This loan is for the purchase of more handcrafts of all kinds to supply her business.

Her dream is to have a business in another city.
