Mariana Cecilia
The Communal Bank “Las Exitosas” (The Successful Ones) meets every 15 days in the canton of Montecristi, which is known for its rich pre-colonial culture and its handicrafts that have received attention on a national and international level. This place is where the famous Panama hats are made.


It is here that one can meet Sra. Mariana. She is 33 years old and a single mother with a nine-year-old son who is in school. Mariana learned sewing and dressmaking several years ago at a school in Montecristi. She lives at the home of her parents. Mariana has been with the Communal Bank for three loan cycles and enjoys the assistance the loans have given her.


She has a small workshop where she has been sewing for many years. Mariana makes sportswear and works based on orders from customers who come to her establishment. She works every day from 6am to 10pm, and sometimes much later when she has orders to deliver. Mariana says that she has been in business for four years. She also likes the fact that she is able to earn an honest living so that she can take care of her son.


This new loan will be used to buy fabrics, thread, buttons, zippers, and other sewing materials. Her dream is to always have work to do.
