Karla Gabriela
The members of the María Del Carmen Community Bank meet twice a month in the canton of Montecristi (Portoviejo). This place is famous for straw hats, and the city has a cool climate and many natural tourist attractions in the area.

Here we meet Karla, who is 21 years old, married, and from this relationship they have two children who are 5 and 3 years old. The older child studies at school. Her husband is a businessman.

She and her husband work together selling local handicrafts such as hammocks, and deck chairs made from wood and rattan. These products are in demand in other cities and they travel to deliver the products three times a month to Quito, Machala and Guayaquil and they have even traveled to the neighboring country of Peru where they can sell these products at a good price. They deliver to warehouses in these cities. Her husband has more than 10 years experience in the business and she has been involved since she became engaged to become his partner.

This loan will be used to buy hammocks, deck chairs and other handicrafts they sell. She has been a member of the communal bank for two years and she likes it because the members are united and trustworthy. Her dream is to buy a car in order to make it easier and more comfortable to transport their products.
