Vicenta Aida
In the province of Manabí we find the 24th of May village, which is where the San José cooperative bank meets. This area is known for its beautiful scenery and for its hard-working residents that primarily dedicate themselves to farming and raising animals.

It is here that we meet Vicenta who is 56 years old, married, and has six children from this relationship. Five of them are now adults and independent; only the last child is a minor living in their home and studying at school. Her husband dedicates himself to farming.

She has a small farm where she raises chickens and pigs. She buys the chicks in Portoviejo in an incubator, and cares for them for about two to three months until they are ready and at a good weight. Later, she gives them to merchants who go to her house to buy both the chickens and pigs and, other times, she takes them to the stores in the area. She works every day caring for her little animals for about three hours per day however, when she has to sell the chickens, she sometimes works all day. She tells us she has been in business for more than 15 years and things have gone well despite a few losses, but she has known how to continue forward.

She will use this loan to buy chickens, feed, and medicine so they will develop well. This is her second cycle, and she is very happy with the institution as she states it has helped her a great deal.

Her dream is for her family to enjoy good health.

Ella tiene una pequeña granja donde cría pollos y chanchos, compra los pollos pequeños en Portoviejo en una incubadora y los mantiene por espacio de dos a tres meses hasta que estén listos y con buen peso, luego los entrega a comerciantes que llegan hasta su casa a comprar tanto a los pollos como a los chanchos o si no los lleva a entregar en las tiendas del lugar. Trabaja todos los días en el cuidado de sus animalitos unas tres horas por día pero cuando tiene que vender los pollos a veces trabaja todo el dia, nos cuenta que lleva más de 15 años con su negocio y le va bien a pesar de que a veces ha tenido pérdidas pero ha sabido seguir adelante.
