Mariana De Lourdes
The “Parque a La Madre” communal bank meets every fifteen days in Jipijapa Canton, a canton known as the “Sultana del Café” due to the extensive plantations of coffee of incomparable flavor there, for its cuisine and for the warm-heartedness of its people.

We met Mariana, 39, here. She’s married and they have three children who are 19, 17 and 1 years old; the older ones are attending university. Her husband’s a merchant.

Aiming to help her husband carry the heavy load of supporting the home, she’s taking out the loan so that he can use it in his business. Her husband has a butcher shop at home where he sells pork and beef. Our girlfriend tells us that he goes off into the fields to buy the pigs which he then takes to the slaughterhouse to get the meat and then take to sell at his shop. As for the beef, he buys it from other merchants downtown. He’s been in business more than 20 years working every day to move his family forward.

This loan is to buy pigs and beef to stock the business. She’s been in the communal bank since its beginning and she likes it because she’s able to help her husband with something this way. Her dream is to buy a car because they have to hire transportation to go buy the pigs.
