José Amadeo
The Communal Bank “Las Américas” meets every 15 days in the city of Portoviejo, the capital of Manabí. This city has been known since colonial times as the city of “Reales Tamarindos” because of the large quantity of tamarind trees that continue to exist today.


It is here that one can meet Don José. He is 56 years old, in a common-law marriage, and has a 14-year-old son who is in high school. His wife takes care of the household duties.


Don José sells fruits and legumes at the market on the days when the fair is in session. He says that he sells during the last three days of the week. On Thursdays, he goes to the fields to buy products directly from the farmers since he can get a cheaper price. He then takes his goods to market where he can sell in bulk and in smaller amounts. José has been in business for three years. For many years he has also been providing transportation services for school children on the days he is not running his business.


This loan will be used to buy fruits, vegetables, and legumes. José has been with the Communal Bank for three loan cycles and is very pleased with the assistance he has received from both the Communal Bank and Fundación ESPOIR.


His dream is to buy a larger truck so that he can bring his products to other cities.
