Rosa Hilda
In the place known as Mapasingue in the Colon parish of Portoviejo, a place that is known for its hard-working people who are engaged in agriculture and livestock farming, the members of the Community Bank "Ladies of San Lorenzo" meet every two weeks.

Here we met Señora Rosa, who is 55 years old. Several years ago her husband died; she has eight children from this relationship, all of whom are now grown. Three daughters still live with her, one of whom is studying at a crafts Academy.

For her livelihood, and so that her daughters can have everything they need, she has for many years worked as a domestic in a house in the city of Portoviejo. She is also involved in agriculture since her husband left them an estate. His occupation was farming, and she continued with this because it provides additional income. As a woman, she cannot do this tough job herself and hires salaried workers. She planted crops in the winter and now needs the loan to pay the workers for the harvest.

This loan is to be used to pay the salaries and thus be able to store her products in order to sell them later when the price is highest. This is her first time with the community bank and she enjoys the support she receives with the loans.

His dream is to have a good harvest and advance in life.
