Oscar Walter
The members of the communal bank named "Amor y Felicidad, meaning "Love and Happiness" meets every two weeks in sector known as El Guabito in the city of Portoviejo, the capital city of Manabi which has been known for many years at the city of the true tamarinds.

Here we meet Oscar. He is 47 years old, married common-law, and he has 5 children, two of whom are grown and three are in school. His wife is a merchant.

He takes on various activities to earn a living and not have his family want for anything. IN the afternoons and the evenings he drives a taxi and in the morning she raises poultry from a small coop on his property. He buys boxes of chicks and he raises them for two or three months. He later sells them to merchants who come to his house or as butchered meat to the neighbors and neighborhood stores. He says that his poultry sells quickly because he feeds them corn, producing meat that is similar to Creole poultry. He works every day two or three hours per day. He purchased another plot of land where he hopes to build another coop from where to raise more poultry.

This loan will be used to purchase construction materials to build another coop, to double the number of poultry from what he has now. He has been with his communal bank since its inception and he appreciates it for the loans that help him increase production daily.

His dream is to have a larger farm.

En el sector conocido como el Guabito de la ciudad de Portoviejo, capital de Manabí conocida desde hace muchos años como la ciudad de los reales tamarindos, se reúnen cada quince días las socias del Banco Comunal Amor Y Felicidad.

En este lugar conocimos a don Oscar, tiene 47 años de edad, mantiene una relación de unión libre de la cual tiene 5 hijos, dos de ellos ya son mayores de edad y tres están en colegio y escuela. Su mujer es comerciante.

Para ganarse la vida y que a su familia no le falte nada él se dedica a diversas actividades, por las tardes y noches se dedica a conducir un taxi y en las mañanas se dedica a la crianza de pollos para lo cual tiene una pequeña granja en su casa. Compra por cajas los pollos cuando están pequeños, los cría de dos a tres meses y luego los vende en pie a comerciantes que llegan hasta su casa o por libras a los vecinos y a tiendas de la localidad, dice que sus pollos se venden mucho ya que los cría con maíz por lo cual su carne es parecida al pollo criollo. Trabaja todos los días dos a tres horas por día, en la actualidad compro otro terreno y allí espera construir otro galpón para meter más pollos.
p>
Este crédito lo va a emplear en comprar materiales de construcción para construir otro galpón y así tener capacidad para meter el doble de pollos de lo que en la actualidad tiene. Está en el Banco Comunal desde sus inicios y le gusta porque con los créditos cada dia va aumentando su producción.

Su sueño es tener una granja más grande.
