Odixa Margarita
In Crucita Parish in Portoviejo Canton meet the members of the “Crucita” communal bank. This location is noted for the beautiful beaches that surround it that are visited by national and international tourists; it’s knows as “Crucita la Bella” [Crucita the Beautiful].

We met Odixa, 40, here. She’s married and has two children who are 21 and 12 years old and who attend University and secondary school. Her husband has a chicken farm.

She and her husband raise chickens and pigs. They have up to 200 chickens per month which they keep from two to three months to then butcher and sell to local stores and stores in Portoviejo. They do the same with the pigs although these they usually sell by the pound to certain restaurants in the zone. They work every day feeding and caring for their little animals. She’s had the farm for over 8 years and has always done well.

This loan is to buy chicks, feed and medicine both for the chicks and for the pigs. She’s a founding member of the communal bank and she likes it because with the loans they’ve been able to overcome many difficult situations in their lives. Her dream is to own a car to transport her products to other cities.
