Ketty Carmen
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 we meet Ketty, age 35. She is married and has three children, ages 15, 10, and 6. The oldest child goes to high school, and the youngest children go to elementary school. Her husband is a merchant.

She is a very good housewife who is getting the loan to help her husband in his business. He sells all types of kitchen utensils like frying pans, dishes, pots, spoons and many other items. He sells door to door. He also travels in his car to other cities to make his sales. He takes advantage of the fairs, which is when he sells the most. Many times she accompanies her husband to make the sales. They have been in this business for over ten years, and it has gone very well for them.

She will use this loan to stock the business with more pots, plates, and spoons, etc. She has been in her communal bank for six cycles. She likes it because the loans are quick and without so many requirements.

Her dream is to have a place in the center of the city.
