Rosa Armanda
Virgen de Guadalupe Communal Bank meets every two weeks in the parish of Carapoto in the canton of Sucre in the province of Manabí. This area is known for its traditional culture as well as for being a few minutes from two of the best beaches in the province, San Jacinto and San Clemente.

Rosa lives in this location. She is 31 years old and maintains a common-law relationship in which she has five children, ages 16, 12, 11, 7, and 2. The two oldest are studying in high school and the next two in elementary school. Her husband is a storekeeper.

She and her husband work selling fruits and vegetables in their home, where they have a small store. Her husband gets up very early to go to the wholesale market to buy from the farmers who come from the country with their products. Then he takes the products to his place to sell to their customers. They began this business with the little they had, and in this way they have supported it for nine years already. Thanks to this they have been able to get their family ahead.

She is going to use this loan to buy fruits and vegetables to sell.

She has been with the communal bank since the beginning, and she likes it because of the help the institution offers her. Her dream is to get ahead for the well-being of her children.
