The Communal Bank “Madres Para Un Futuro Mejor” (Mothers for a Better Future) meets every 15 days in the May 24th canton in Manabí Province. This area is known for its beautiful landscapes, its forests, the variety of animal life, and the friendly and hardworking people who make their living through agriculture and livestock breeding.


It is in this place that one can meet Sra. Maritza. She is 32 years old, married, and has two daughters (ages 14 and 10) who are in school. Her husband is a merchant.


Maritza and her husband manage a snack bar at a high school in their town. There they sell many foods and beverages. At their snack bar, students can order empanadas, sandwiches, “corviches” (fish fritters), sodas, natural juices, and other items. In addition, Maritza sells all types of clothes on the weekends and generates her sales by going door-to-door. She says that her customers place many orders with her because she offers them a good price and convenient payment options. Maritza has been selling clothes for seven years and has managed her snack bar for five years.


This loan will be used to buy all types of clothing and product such as sodas, juices, empanadas, candy, and other items to restock her snack bar. Maritza has been with the Communal Bank for five years and enjoys the assistance that has been given to her. Her dreams are to have a shop where she can sell clothes and to open a restaurant.
