Aurora Pastora
Every two weeks Quiroga Communal Bank meets in the Quiroga parish of the city of Calceta, a town where the people work mainly in agriculture, raising animals, and selling their products.

Aurora, 47, is married and has five children from this relationship. One of them died a few years ago, three are of age, and the youngest is 13 and studies in high school and still lives at home, because the others are already independent. Her husband is a storekeeper.

She and her husband work raising chickens and pigs, in agriculture, and buying and selling fruit. Her husband goes around the fields buying products from the area such as oranges, mandarins, lemons, watermelons, melons, etc. They take them for distribution to Portoviejo and also once a week they send them to the city of Quito because they sell them at a better price there because they are coastal fruits. One of her children is the one who receives these products in Quito and takes charge of selling them and charging for them.

She is going to use this loan to buy all types of fruits to send to Portoviejo and Quito, as well as pig feed. She has been in the communal bank for more than eight years and she likes it because of the benefits she has received from Fundación ESPOIR.

Her dreams are to have a well-built house and a truck.
