Bartola Elizabeth
The community bank "Unidas Por Un Futuro Mejor" (United for a better future) meets every fortnight in the Montecristi canton, which is known for its rich pre-colonial culture, and for its crafts, which are recognised at a national and an international level. It is also known for its famous straw panama hats.

This is where Elizabeth lives. She is 34 years of age and lives with her partner with whom she has four children of 16, 15, 13 and 6 years of age. The older children are in high school and the younger children are in primary school. Her husband is a driver.

Elizabeth works in a home in her neighbourhood as a housekeeper to earn some money and help her husband with the household expenses. She also works selling clothing and visits her customers all over the city to sell clothes and collect payment for delivered orders. She has been working in this field for four years and it is going very well for her. She buys items in Guayaquil anytime she needs to stock up her supplies.

With this loan Elizabeth will buy items including pants, shirts, tops and children's clothing. She has been with the community bank for five loan cycles and she likes to use this service because of the ease with which she can obtain a loan.

Her dream is to give her children the best opportunities possible.
