Sucena Narcisa
The city of Manta is known for its beautiful beaches, which are highly frequented throughout the year by both domestic and foreign tourists. The city is also known for its hot climate, fine food, and numerous tourist attractions. The members of the Palabra de Mujer communal bank meet every 15 days in the city’s 15th of September neighborhood.

Sucena is 53 year old. Her husband passed away several years ago, leaving her a widow. From that relationship she has 10 children, 9 of whom are adults and live independently. Only her youngest son lives with her—he is 10 years old and is in school.

For six years Sucena has operated a small grocery store in her home to earn a living. Her customers can get everything they need there, since she keeps it well stocked in order to gain more customers each day. She works from 6:00 in the morning until 8:00 in the evening. She thoroughly enjoys her business, since it is a way to earn a living as well as to pass the time, and it provides for all of her son’s needs and for the upkeep of their home.

Sucena will use this loan to stock her store with more merchandise, including rice, sugar, oil, detergent, and other basic staple products. She has been a member of her communal bank since it was founded, and she likes it because she has made many friends in the group.

Sucena’s goal is to get ahead in her business and for her store to grow more each day.
