Lucia Patricia
The 24 de Mayo (May 24th) canton (smaller region within a province) is located in the Manabí province and this is where the San Jose communal bank meets. This area is known for its beautiful landscapes and hard-working people who work in agriculture and raising animals.

Here we met Patricia. She is 33-years-old, married, and has two children from this relationship who are six and 12-years-old. The oldest is in school. Her husband is a teacher in the region.

In addition to being a very good mother and wife, she also dedicates her time to productive activities. She has a small plantain chip factory in her house where she works every day and sometimes hires someone to help her producing her products. Her husband also helps her when he finishes his work day. She tells us that what she produces is sold the same day because as well as selling from her factory she also delivers to different bars and restaurants in the canton. She has had this business for seven years and it is going very well.

This loan is to buy plantains, oil, and salt to prepare the plantain chips. This is her second loan cycle in the communal bank and she likes it because of the benefits that the group has.

Her dream is that her business be much bigger and that it have more machines to produce in greater quantity.
