Rosa Benilda
The communal bank Quiroga meets every two weeks in Quiroga parish in the city Calceta. The people of this area, by and large, farm, raise animals, and sell their products. This is where we met Sra. Rosa. Rosa, 47, lives with her partner, but even after living together for years she has not been able to have children. Her nephew, that she has raised since he was little, lives with her and is like a son. He now an adult. Her husband works in construction.

Sra. Rosa is good housewife who helps her husband with the household expenses by working two jobs. She buys and sells peanuts. She buys the product as a grain from merchants in Calceta, brings them home, cooks and grinds them and then gives them to her sister who takes them to Santo Domingo. Her sister delivers them to customers or stores in the area. It's said that she sells her product at a good price. Her other job is raising animals in a pen. This is another way she makes some money. She works alone for 7 hours a day.

This loan is to purchase peanuts, chickens, and feed that will help them grow. This is her sixth period with the Communal Bank and she likes it because her companions do what they say they are going to do. She dreams of having her own car and for her and her family to be in good health.

El Banco Comunal Quiroga se reúne cada quince días en la parroquia Quiroga de la ciudad de Calceta, localidad donde la gente se dedica en gran parte a la agricultura, cría de animales y a la venta de sus productos.

En este lugar conocimos a la señora Rosa. Tiene 47 años de edad, mantiene una relación de unión libre y a pesar de que lleva varios años comprometida no ha podido tener hijos, con ella vive un sobrino que lo crio desde pequeño y es como si fuera su hijo el ya es mayor de edad. Su marido es albañil.

Es una muy buena ama de casa que para ayudar a su marido con los gastos del hogar se dedica a dos actividades, una a la compra y venta de maní, ella compra el producto en grano a los comerciantes en Calceta el mismo que traslada a su casa donde lo cocina y muele para después entregarlo a su hermana que lo lleva a Santo Domingo, su hermana entrega a clientes o tiendas del lugar, dice que allá su producto se vende a muy buen precio. Su otra actividad es la cría de animales de corral ya que esto también le deja algo de ganancia. Trabaja sola todos los días siete horas al día.

Este crédito es para comprar maní, pollos y comida para estos para que tengan un buen desarrollo. Este es su sexto ciclo en el Banco Comunal y le gusta porque sus compañeras son muy cumplidas.

Sus sueños son tener un carro y gozar de buena salud ella y los suyos.
