Liseth Geanina
Every two weeks the members of the 7 de Septiembre community bank meet in the city of Manta. This city is well known for its beautiful beaches which are popular year round. It is also a city with many tourist attractions and a beauty which is second to none.

Here we meet Liseth who is 19 years old. She lives with her common-law husband and the couple have two children. One is 4 years old and the other is a baby of 3 months. Her husband is a salesman.

Liseth and her husband sell fish. Three to four times a week they travel to the city's beaches, where the fishing boats come in, to buy fish. They take the fish and deliver it to different factories in the city. They sell it to them wholesale. Liseth also sells all kinds of clothing. She makes her sales in the afternoons when she has time free and on days when she doesn't accompany her husband to sell fish. They have been in this business for more than five years and it is a business that Liseth learned from her dad who is also in this line of work.

This loan will be used to buy fish and clothing. This is Liseth's third loan cycle with her community bank and she likes it because of the help that she has been given by the institution.

Liseth's dreams are to own a truck and premises she can sell her merchandise.

El Banco Comunal 7 De Septiembre se reúne cada 15 días en la ciudad de Manta, ciudad conocida por sus hermosas playas que son muy visitadas en toda época del año y por ser una ciudad con una belleza sin igual con muchos atractivos turísticos.

En este lugar vive la señora Lisseth tiene 19 años de edad y mantiene una relación de unión libre de la cual tiene dos hijos de 4 años y un bebé de 3 meses de nacido. El marido es comerciante.

Ella junto al esposo se dedican a la venta de pescado, de tres a cuatro veces por semana se desplazan hasta las playas de la ciudad donde llegan las embarcaciones pesqueras para comprar el pescado y llevarlo a entregar a las diferentes fabricas de la ciudad a quienes les venden al por mayor. Ella por su parte también se dedica a la venta de ropa de todo tipo, ventas que realiza por las tardes cuando está desocupada y en los días que no acompaña a sus esposo en la venta del pescado, ellos llevan ya más de 5 años y es una actividad que la aprendió de su papá ya que él también se dedica al comercio.

Este crédito es para comprar pescado y ropa. Este es el tercer ciclo en el Banco Comunal y le gusta por la ayuda que le ha brindado la institución.

Sus sueños son tener un camión y un local para vender su mercadería.
