The San Pedro communal bank meets every two weeks in San Pedro in Manta city. The city is known for its beautiful beaches that are very popular throughout the whole year. It is also known for being a city with unmatched beauty and a lot of tourist attractions.

This is where Miriam, age 25, lives. She is in a common-law marriage, and she has an eleven year old son who goes to school. Her husband paints boats. She is a homemaker. In order to obtain her own income and help her husband with the household expenses she sells slippers and shoes by catalog.

The way that she sells is by offering items with her magazine. Then, when she has several orders, she sends in the order. When the order comes, she then delivers it. She leaves these products on credit, and she collects every two weeks. She has been doing this business activity for two years, and it is going very well for her.

This way she earns something on her own, and she feels useful.

She will use the loan to buy slippers, shoes, and mostly seasonal sandals. She has been in her communal bank for three years. She likes it because of the help that she gets with the loans.

Her dream is to get ahead with her business.
