Adita Mariana
Every two weeks the members of the community bank named "Mujeres de 13 de Septiembre", meaning "The Women of September 13" meet in the city of Portoviejo, the capital city of Manabi, which has been known for many years as the city of the royal tamarinds.

Here we meet Adita. She is 48 years old and she is divorced, but from that relationship she has six children. Four of her children are grown and the two youngest are 17 and 14 years of age and they attend high school. Five of her children still live at home. Our friend has been with her communal bank for more than three years and she appreciates it becuase it is through loans that she has been able to move her business forward.

Eight years ago our friend set up a bar inside of her house with the goal of earning a daily income for herself and for her children. She also sells soft drinks, juices, beer, and snacks such as hamburgers, savory pastries, and ready to eat products. She works from Friday to Sunday and her children help her from 2:00 pm to 10:00 pm. It is thanks to her work that she has been able to provide for her children following her separation from her husband.

This loan will be used to purchase soft drinks, juices, beer, and grocery products to prepare foods.

Her dream is to have a successful business and to see her children complete their studies.
