Melida Eudocia
The “Mujeres Unidas” (United Women) communal bank meets every fifteen days in the San Alejo neighborhood in the very beautiful city of Portoviejo, capital of Manabí, and known as the “City of the Royal Tamarinds.” It’s a city of hospitable, kind people that offers many attractions to visitors.

Melida, 76, lives here. Her husband died several years ago and she was left widowed but she had three children during her marriage who are all now adults. However, one of her daughters still lives with her; her daughter’s children are the joy of our girlfriend’s life.

She has an automobile spare parts shop that she’s had since her husband was alive and that she had to take over with help from her daughter when he died. They work there every day from 8am until 5pm. She’s had the shop for 14 years and she tells us that in order to stock up on merchandise her daughter travels to Manta, Quito or to Guayaquil to buy directly from wholesalers.

She will use this loan to buy more automobile spare parts to have everything for her customers. She’s been a member of the communal bank for six years and likes it because of the benefits the institution provides. Her goal is to continue forward and above all to be in good health.
