Jacoba Yolanda
Jacoba lives in the city of Portoviejo, which is the capital of Manabí. It has been known for many years as the city of real tamarinds due to the large quantity of this fruit that it produced years ago. Jacoba meets with her fellow members of the Fe Y Progreso (Faith and Progress) communal bank every two weeks.

Jacoba is a founding member of her communal bank, and she likes it because of the help that her loans have always given her. She is 67, married, and has 8 children who are independent adults. She lives with one grandson who is 18 and is like her own son. Her husband is retired.

Our friend has a grocery store in her home where she sells all kinds of products like: rice, sugar, oils, detergents, candy, soft drinks, etc. She works there every day from 6 a.m. until 8 p.m., and her husband helps her with her work. She has had her store for 18 years, and she started it with her first loan that she received from the institution. She is very grateful this since her store is her reason for living. In addition to earning her living from it, it is also a way to distract herself with her customers.

She will use this loan to further stock her store. She is going to buy rice, sugar, oil, detergents, sausages, and other basic goods.

Her goals are to get ahead with her business so that it will grow more every day.

En la ciudad de Portoviejo, capital de Manabí conocida desde hace muchos años como la ciudad de los reales tamarindos, por la gran cantidad de este fruto que había en aquella época, se reúnen cada quince días las socias del Banco Comunal Fe Y Progreso.

La señora Jacoba es socia fundadora del Banco comunal y le gusta por la ayuda que le han dado siempre con los créditos. Tiene 67 años de edad, está casada y de esta relación tiene 8 hijos los cuales ya son mayores de edad e independientes, con ella vive un nieto que ya tiene 18 años y que es como su hijo. Su esposo es jubilado.

Nuestra amiga tiene una tienda de comestibles en su casa en la cual vende todo tipo de productos como: arroz, azúcar, aceites, detergentes, golosinas, sodas entre otras cosas, allí trabaja todos los días desde las 6h00 hasta las 20h00 y su esposo le ayuda en su trabajo. Su tienda tiene 18 años y empezó con el primer crédito que recibió de la institución por lo cual está muy agradecida ya que su tiendita es su razón de vivir ya que en ella adema de ganarse la vida se distrae con sus clientes.

Sus metas son seguir adelante en su negocio y que su tienda crezca cada día más.
