Carmen
The members of the community bank Crucita meet in the Crucita parish of the city of Portoviejo. This place is known for its beautiful beaches that surround the pretty town and that are visited by many tourists, both domestic and international. It is known by the name "Crucita la Bella" (Crucita The Beautiful).
This is where we met Carmen. She is 55 years old, single, and lives in her brother's house. He is married and has 3 children who our friend loves as though they were her own.
Our friend has a business buying and selling seafood. She has a store in her house where she sells fish, shrimp, conches, octopus, and other types of seafood. She works on the last 4 days of the week because the most tourists come to the local beaches on those days. She has been doing this for 20 years. She buys her goods directly from the fishermen, which is beneficial because she gets fish fresh from the sea and at a good price.
This loan is for buying fish, shrimp, octopus, conches, and other seafood. She has been with the community bank from its start and likes it because of the benefits it has offered her.
Her dream is to have a big fridge.

Nuestra amiga tiene un negocio de compra y venta de mariscos, tiene un local en su casa en el cual ofrece a sus clientes pescado, camarón, conchas, pulpo entre otras variedades de mariscos, trabaja los cuatro últimos días de la semana ya que en estos días es cuando más turistas llegan hasta las playas locales. Ella lleva ya 20 años que se dedica a esta actividad, sus productos los compra directamente de los pescadores lo cual es un beneficio ya que consigue más barato y un producto recién salido del mar.

Este crédito es para comprar pescado, camarón, pulpo, conchas y otros mariscos. Esta desde el inicio en el Banco Comunal y le gusta por los beneficios que les ha brindado el banco.

Sus sueños son tener un gran frigorífico.
