Enita Estrella
Every two weeks in Portoviejo, known since colonial times as the City of the "Reales Tamarindos," the members of the June 5th Communal Bank meet.

Enita is a founding member of the communal bank as well as the secretary, and she likes the bank because the interest is much lower than other lending institutions. She is 51 years old, married, and has 5 children from this union, all of whom are grown. The oldest daughter still lives with her and studies at the university. Her husband no longer works due to illness. Many years ago, she learned clothing cutting and assembling at an academy in Portoviejo.

She has a small sewing workshop in her house where for many years she has sewn all kinds of clothing, based on orders from private individuals who come to her house. She works every day from 6 am until 10 pm, and at times even later when she has orders to complete. Her daughter helps her when she has time. She has done this work for more than 20 years.

She is going to use this new loan to purchase cloth, thread, buttons, closures and other sewing supplies.

Her dream is to have a larger workshop.
