Luisa Patricia
The Aníbal San Andrés communal bank meets every two weeks in the Montecristi Cantón (Portoviejo). This place is famous for its straw hats.

This is where we meet Luisa, age 33. She is married and has three children; ages 16, 12, and 10. The two oldest are in high school, and the youngest goes to elementary school. Her husband is a workman.

She has a grocery store in her house where she sells a little of everything. Her customers can find everything they need there. She has had her business for 11 years, and she works every day. If she does not work there is no income, and she loses customers. She starts tending to her customers at 6:00 a.m. and she closes at 8:00 p.m.

She wants this loan to buy more products in order to expand her store. She will buy rice, sugar, meat, fish, and other basic needs products. She has been in her communal bank since it started. She likes the ease of getting the loans.

Her dream is to have a much bigger store.
