Mariana De Jesús
In the canton 24 De Mayo, Manabi Province, members of the 'Nuevos Horizontes' communal bank meet. It is a place known for its beautiful scenery and hard-working people who are mostly engaged in agriculture and animal husbandry.

59-year-old Mariana is a founding member of the communal bank and likes it because the stakes are lower than in other credit institutions, and she appreciates the help they have given with the loans. Her husband died several years ago, but she has 6 children from that relationship who are now older and independent.

In order to make a living following the death of her husband, Mariana used all of her resources and with the help of one of the loans she established a small grocery store in her home. Her business has been improving each day, and with the help of loans she is able to stock her store with more merchandise. Mariana has had her business for three years and she says that thanks to the store she is not missing anything and also enjoys herself at work. On weekends, she prepares and sells empanadas which gives her a little extra income.

This loan will be invested in buying staple goods to stock her store.

Mariana's dreams are to continue to succeed and grow her business.
