Sandra Elizabeth
The Productivo Communal Bank meets every fifteen days in Montecristi Canton, known for its rich pre-colonial culture. The canton is recognized, both nationally and internationally, for its artisanship and is also the home of the famous Panama Hats.

Sandra, 38 years old, lives here. She lives in a civil union and has three children from this relationship, ages 13, 9, and 4 months. Her older children are in school and her husband is an artisan.

In order to get ahead, our friend and her husband have a grocery store in their home where they sell all types of products such as rice, sugar, oil, detergent, legumes, vegetables, and fruits. In addition, they recharge and sell phone cards. Sandra works every day from 6:00 am until 8:00 pm, sometimes even later. Her husband works just as hard creating artisanal crafts in his workshop, also located in their home. Sandra helps her husband from time to time. She has had her business for eight years and it is going very well because she has a very good clientele.

She will use this loan to stock her store. She is going to buy supplies and school gear to take advantage of the beginning of the school season. She has been a member of her communal bank for two years and she likes it because of the help given by means of the loans. Her dream is to provide her children with a better education.
