Ana Amada
The community bank Progreso Del Mar meets every two weeks in the beautiful spa-town of San Mateo, part of the city of Manta, which is know for its beautiful beaches which are visited year-round by national and foreign tourists. In this place, most of the people work in the fishing industry and at other tasks related to the sea.
In this place, we met Ana. She is 44 years old, married, and has three children, two of whom are grown-up and one who is 12 years old. All her children study at the university or, in the case of the younger one, in high school. They all still live with her. Her husband is a fisherman.
To earn something of her own and, in this way, contribute to the hard task of keeping the household, she works selling all types of clothes. She has a little store in her home but she also sells door to door. She works every day from 8:00am until 6:00pm. She sells for cash and also offers credit to the customers that she knows well and collects every two weeks. She goes to Guayaquil to buy her merchandise every two weeks or every month as needed. She has been doing this for 12 years and it is going well.
She will use this loan to buy more merchandise such as: plants, blouses, t-shirts, and children's clothes. She has been with the community bank since its sixth loan cycle and she likes it for the help that is given to the borrowers.
Her dream is to see her children finish their studies and become good professionals.
