Jessica Jenny
In the district of Crucita in the region of Portoviejo we find a place known as Los Arenales. It is where the members of the communal bank named "Faith and Hope" meet every two weeks. It is known for its beautiful beaches, its food, and the welcoming population.

Here we meet Jessica. She is 30 years old and she is married common-law. She has three children, aged 11, 8, and 1. The older children are in school. Her husband is a fisherman.

She raises pigs and poultry. She has a small farm on her property and she says during certain seasons she purchases from one hundred to two hundred chickens. She raises them during two or three months which is the time needed to for them to be ready for sale. She processes them and sells them to stores in the vicinity. She also sells by taking orders or to merchants who come to her house. The pigs are slaughtered and sold as meat by the pound. She has 5 years in the business.

This new loan will be used to purchase a larger number of poultry, feed, and medicines. This is her fourth loan cycle with the communal bank. She is the treasurer of the group and she is very happy because it has helped her so much.

Her dream is to have a farm that will supply these products to the entire province.
