Laura Beatriz
Every two weeks the members of the village bank known as Estancia Vieja meet in the neighborhood of Estancia Vieja, located in the Colon parish of the city of Portoviejo. This area is home to humble people who work in agriculture and general trade.


Laura, who is 34 years of age, lives in this area. She is separated, and has three children aged 15, 13 and eight from her prior relationship. Her older children are in high school, and the youngest is in elementary school. To get ahead in life and ensure the best for her children, she works in agriculture. She says that this is hard work, but she carries on for her children, for whom she is both mother and father.


From Friday to Sunday she sells roast sausages in the evenings. She has set up a small store in her home where she sells this delicious dish. She takes advantage of these days because many people go to a nearby sports area to take part in sports. These are the days when the most people are in the area. She also sells sodas, water and juices, and has had this business for more than five years, helping her to earn more and get ahead in life.


She plans on using this loan to buy sausages, sodas and water, among other items. She has had ten loan cycles with the village bank, and is thankful for the help she has received. Her dream is to see her children have a professional career.
