Angela Margarita
Every two weeks, the members of the 'Mujeres Organizadas' community bank meet in Rocafuerte canton. This place is known for the sweet treats that the locals make. They are well known throughout the country.

Here we meet 55 year-old Angela who is married and has four children who are all now adults. Two of them still live in her home. Her husband is a salesman.

Together with her husband, Angela owns a business making and selling iced treats. They work every day, from 7.00am to 5.00pm. In the mornings, Angela takes charge of making the delicious iced treats in different flavors, then her husband goes out to sell them in town. He also travels to the countryside where their iced treats are very much appreciated and enjoyed. They also make sales from their home.

In addition to this work, in the afternoons Angela sets up small premises where she sells afternoon meals. She makes dishes to please her customers who arrive at her small premises in large numbers. She tells us that she and her husband have been in this business for 20 years and, in spite of the competition, things are going very well.

Angela will use this loan to buy sugar, flavorings and food products for preparing her afternoon meals. She has been a member of her community bank for nine years now and she likes it because every time she receives a loan she gets ahead and increases her production.

Angela's dreams are to continue working and enjoying good health.
