María Evangelista
The Community Bank Aníbal San Andrés meets every fifteen days in the Canton Montecristi (Portoviejo), known for its rich pre-colonial culture and for its handicrafts that are recognized on a national and international level. It is the home of the famous straw hats.

In this place we met the lady María, who is 54 years old of age, and is in a common law marriage from which she has five children, already all of legal age, one of whom still lives in at home. Her husband is a merchant.

She sells crafts such as chairs, furniture and decorations for the home. She buys them in Montecristi from the artisans of this city and then one or two times a week she brings them to Guayaquil and other cities where these products are appreciated and where she sells them at a very good price. María is also very intelligent since once she is in these cities, she buys clothes, costume jewelry and kitchen utensils which she brings back to her hometown to sell. She has been in this business for more than 20 years and it has always gone very well since she has regular customers.

She will use this new loan to purchase handicrafts such as chairs, furniture, and decorations for the home to deliver to Guayaquil. She has been with the Communal Bank since its start and she likes it for the benefits that she receives from the institution.

Her dream is to have a truck to use to carry her products to other places in the country.

Ella se dedica al comercio, vende artesanías como sillas, muebles y adornos para el hogar, ella compra en Montecristi a los artesanos de esta ciudad y luego una o dos veces por semana lleva a entregar a Guayaquil y otras ciudades donde son apreciados estos productos y donde vende a muy buen precio. La Señora María es también muy inteligente ya que una vez que está en estas ciudades compra ropa, bisutería y utensilios de cocina los mismos que lleva a vender por su ciudad natal, lleva en este negocio por más de 20 años y siempre le ha ido muy bien ya que tiene clientes fijos.

Este nuevo crédito lo va a emplear en comprar artesanía como sillas, muebles y adornos para el hogar para llevar a entregar a Guayaquil. Esta desde el inicio en el Banco Comunal y le gusta por los beneficios que recibe de la institución.

Su sueño tener un camión para llevar sus productos a otros lugares del país.
