Nelly
The village bank Madres Unidas [Mothers United] meets every 15 days in Los Bajos de Montecristi, a city known for a wide variety of traditional products such as the straw hats that are locally and internationally known.

Here we meet Nelly, 46, who is married and has two children, ages 27 and 24. They both live at home, even though the younger is already married. Her husband works in a carpentry workshop.

She has a small store in her home where she sells ice cream, sodas, juices, fruit smoothies and some snacks that she makes herself. She also sells phone cards and cell phone minutes. She works every day at the business she started 15 years ago. She has been able to increase her business little by little, and it has allowed her to help her husband to take care of their family.

This loan will be used to buy fruit, ice cream, soda, phone cards and other things that she sells in her store. She has been in the village bank since the beginning and likes it because she has made many friends in the group.

Her goal is to continue making progress with her business.
