Juana
In Los Bajos de Montecristi, a city known for its great variety of traditional products like the straw hats famous both nationally and internationally, the members of the “La Dolorosa Del Pechiche” communal bank meet every two weeks.

Juana is a founding member of the communal bank. She tells us that she’s been in the communal bank for many years and likes it because the loans have made it possible for her family to get ahead with their small business. She is 42 years old, married and has 7 children. Five of them are adults and two, who are 16 and 8 years of age, are in secondary and elementary school respectively and still live at home. Her husband’s a merchant and an artisan.

She is taking out this loan so that her husband can use it in the business which has always supported the household. Our friend tells us that her husband crisscrosses the town on his three wheeled cart selling vegetables and legumes. He works three days a week selling but the rest of the time he works at a brick factory where they live. She tells us that it is very difficult to support a household with just one activity and this is why it’s necessary to work in everything possible.

This loan is to buy Lima beans, kidney beans, broad beans and all types of legumes and vegetables to sell to customers. Her dream is to stay healthy and continue making progress.

Ella realiza el crédito para que el esposo lo utilice en el negocio con el cual siempre ha mantenido el hogar, nos cuenta nuestra amiga que sus esposo se dedica a la venta de verduras y legumbres para lo cual recorre la localidad en un triciclo, trabaja tres días en sus ventas pero el resto de la semana de dedica a trabajar en una ladrillera del sitio donde vive, nos cuenta que con una sola actividad es muy difícil mantener un hogar por eso es necesario trabajar en todo lo que sea posible.
