Editha Judith
The members of the Mejorando El Futuro communal bank meet every two weeks in a place called Tierras Amarillas, within the Rocafuerte settlement. This sector is known for its agriculture and most of its residents raise short cycle crops.


Editha lives here. She’s 29 years old and is in a live in relationship and has an 11 year old daughter who attends school. Her husband is a farmer.


Our friend works in partnership with one of her brothers. They are farmers and tell us that they always plant rice, corn, and vegetables. She is in charge of getting the loans with which they finance their crops, while her brother works the fields, along with two other people whom they pay. Our friend tells us that they are just getting into the planting season and their previous crops were damaged by the harsh winter. They lost everything and now, with the help of this loan, they hope to be able to replant and recover part of their losses.


They will use the money from this loan to buy seed, fertilizer, and also pay for labor to plant the crops. She has been part of the communal bank for four cycles and she likes it because it helps her with loans and they would not be able to plant without them.


Her hopes are to be able to recover her losses and come out ahead with her family.

En una localidad llamada Tierras Amarillas del cantón Rocafuerte cada quince días se reúnen las socias del Banco Comunal Mejorando El Futuro, este sector es conocido por su agricultura ya que gran parte de sus habitantes se dedican a los sembríos de ciclo corto.

En este lugar vive la señora Editha, tiene 29 años de edad y mantiene una relación de unión libre de la cual tiene una hija de 11 años de edad, la misma que estudia en colegio. El marido se dedica a la agricultura.

Nuestra amiga trabaja en sociedad con uno de sus hermanos, se dedican a la agricultura y nos cuenta que ellos siempre siembran cultivos de arroz, maíz y verduras, ella se encarga de realizar los créditos con los cuales financian estos cultivos mientras que su hermano es quien se dedica a los trabajos en el campo junto con dos personas más a quienes les pagan por su trabajo, nos cuenta nuestra amiga que recién están en el periodo de siembras ya que lo que tenían sembrado se les daño por lo duro del invierno, ellos perdieron todo y ahora con la ayuda de este crédito esperan volver a sembrar y recuperar en parte lo que se perdió.

Este crédito lo va emplear en comprar semillas, fertilizantes y además para pagar mano de obra para sembrar los cultivos. Está en el Banco Comunal desde hace 4 ciclos y le gusta porque le ayudan con los créditos ya que si no fuera por este crédito no pudieran sembrar.

Sus sueños es poder recuperar lo que se perdió y salir adelante junto a su familia.
