Sandra Arelis
The members of the Unión y Solidaridad communal bank meet every two weeks in the San Pablo parish in the city of Portoviejo. It is the capital of Manabí, which for many years has been known as the city of the royal tamarinds.

This is where Sandra, age 27, lives. She is married and has two children, ages 11 and 8. The children go to school, and her husband is a merchant. She is a very good housewife who devotes herself to commerce. She sells sheets and quilts door to door. In the afternoons and evenings she sets up a place in her house where she sells hamburgers, “corviches” (deep-fried stuffed pastries made with bananas, fish and onion), juice, soda, and other foods.

She works every day from 5:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. selling her snacks. She makes her door to door sales three mornings a week. She has been in her business for over seven years, and it has gone very well for her.

She will use this loan to buy sheets, quilts, and various supplies to prepare food. She has been in her communal bank for over four years. She likes the ease of making the payments.

Her dream is to expand her business.
