Rosa Melida
In the parish of Crucita in Portoviejo canton, we find a place known as Los Arenales ["The Sands''] Here, every fifteen days, the members of the Nueva Generación [New Generation] communal bank meet. The area is known for its beautiful beaches, its cuisine and the warmth of its people.

In this place we meet Rosa, who is 55 years old. She has a common-law husband, with whom she has a 25-year-old daughter. The daughter is married and lives with her husband and small daughter in Rosa's home. Rosa's husband is a farmer. Rosa has been in the communal bank for 18 years, and she likes it because of the various loans offered by the Espoir Foundation.

As a good partner, she works side by side with her husband in agriculture, planting short-cycle crops such as melons, rice, corn and peppers. She also works raising chickens. They work from Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. They have two people working with them, to whom they pay a weekly salary. Rosa reports that they sell their harvest to buyers who come to their home. The same thing happens with the chickens; however, Rosa also sells them from her house by the pound.

This new loan is to buy seeds, farm supplies, fertilizers and chicken feed.

Rosa's dreams are to get ahead, enjoy good health and keep her family healthy.
