Laura Del Rocío
In Mejía, located a few kilometers from the city of Portoviejo, the Mejía Community Bank meets every two weeks. In this city many people work in farming and in growing and selling coconuts.

Here we meet Laura. She is 24 years old and is in a common law marriage with a 3 year old daughter. Her husband is a merchant.

She is a young mother who in order to have her own income 7 months ago decided to join the community bank to start a business with the loan. She sells all types of clothing door to door. She also sells from her house and her customers arrive when she has new merchandise. She tells us that she works via orders. She works three days a week especially in the afternoons. She sells on credit to her customers and collects every two weeks. Her husband brings the merchandise from the United States since he travels to that country, as he is a US resident.

She is going to use this loan to buy more merchandise such as: pants, blouses, shirts and children's clothing. She has been in the community bank for two cycles and she likes it because of the ease of getting the loans.

Her dream is to keep growing her business.
