Amelia Sebastiana
The San Pablo parish of Portoviejo, capital of Manabí, known for many years as the city of the real tamarinds, is where the member of the “Unión Y Solidaridad” (Unity and Solidarity) communal bank meet every two weeks.

Here we meet Amelia. She’s 49 years old, married, and has two adult children, both married and on their own. Her husband is a merchant.

She has a small restaurant in her home, where she prepares delicious dishes, and works Monday through Saturday from 6:00 am to 3:00 pm. She prepares daily breakfasts and lunches and makes something different every day so that her customers don’t tire of the same food. She works alone and has been doing this for 12 years. Things have always gone well for her and her customers prefer her because the seasonings she adds to her dishes make them special.

She will use the money from this loan to buy rice, meat, fish, and other food to prepare her dishes. She is the communal bank’s founder and she enjoys it because of the ease in getting loans because they don’t have too many requirements.

Her dream is to have her own house, as she currently rents.

En la parroquia San Pablo de la ciudad de Portoviejo, capital de Manabí conocida desde hace muchos años como la ciudad de los reales tamarindos, se reúnen cada quince días las socias del Banco Comunal Unión Y Solidaridad.

En este lugar conocimos a la señora Amelia. Tiene 49 años de edad, está casada y de esta relación tiene dos hijos los cuales ya son mayores de edad, casados e independientes. Su esposo es comerciante.

Ella tiene un pequeño restaurante en su casa, en el cual prepara deliciosos platos, trabaja de lunes a sábados desde las 06h00 hasta las 15h00. Ella prepara desayunos y almuerzos y cada día prepara algo diferente para que sus clientes no se aburran de la misma comida, ella trabaja sola. Tiene su restaurante por 12 años y siempre le ha ido muy bien ya que sus clientes la prefieren por la sazón que le pone a sus platos y eso la hace especial.

Este crédito lo va utilizar en comprar arroz, carne, pescado y otros víveres para la preparación de los alimentos. Es socia fundadora del Banco comunal y le gusta por las facilidades para conseguir los créditos ya que no piden tantos requisitos.

Su sueño es tener una casa propia ya que donde vive es arrendado.
