Angela Vctoria
The “24 de Diciembre” communal bank meets every two weeks in Montecristi Canton known for its rich pre-colonial culture and for its crafts that are known both nationally and internationally; it’s the place where the famous straw hats come from.

We met Ángela, 34, here. She’s married and has four children who are 14, 12, 11 and 9 years old. The two older ones go to secondary school and the two younger ones are in elementary school. Her husband works on a fishing boat.

She’s a housewife who in order to earn her own income works selling clothes of all types door to door; she also has some display cases at home where she also sells her wares. She tells us that she also works based on prior orders placed by her customers ahead of time. She works every weekend selling on credit and collecting weekly payments. She goes to Guayaquil to buy her merchandise every time she needs to. She has been in this business two years and does very well.


This loan will be used to buy more merchandise like pants, blouses, t-shirts and children’s clothes. She’s been in the communal bank two years and likes it because her fellow members are very responsible. Her dream is to have a boat of her own.
