In the city of Portoviejo, the capital of Manabi, a city known for many years as the City of the Royal Tamarinds, the communal bank "Mujeres 13 de Septiembre" meets every 15 days.

This is where Leonor, aged 55, lives. She is married and has 7 children, all of whom are now adults. Four of them still live in her house, and she also lives with a 7 year-old grandson who is in school and who she has raised as her own since he was small. Her husband is a security guard.

Leonor is a great housewife who, in order to earn something on her own and contribute to the household expenses, has a business selling bed sheets and comforters. She has a small store in her house, and 2 days a week she also sells door-to-door. She sells her goods on credit, and collects every 15 days. She goes to purchase her merchandise in Picoaza, since there she can find the goods at the lowest cost. She has had this business for 3 years, and she is doing quite well.

This loan will be used to buy sheets, comforters and pillows. She has been in her communal bank for more than 2 years, and she likes it because of the loans that have helped her to get ahead.

Her dream is to see her grandchild grow up and become educated.
