Araceli Monserreate
In the city of Tosagua the communal bank of Amigas de Tosagua meet twice a month. This place is known for being very dynamic where most of the people work in agriculture and animal husbandry, and for being an area of great vegetation.

Here we meet Aracely, who is 39 years old, married and from this relationship she has 4 children who are 20, 18, 14 and 5 years old. The older two are studying at university and the younger are school students. They all live together with her. Her husband works for a construction company.

Our friend has a little sewing workshop where she makes all types of clothing for women, men, and children, although what she most likes to make is clothing for women. She takes individual work orders but makes uniforms for institutions, and neighborhood schools at fixed intervals. She works every day from 6:00AM until 7:00PM and at times until even later when she has orders to deliver. She has been in this business for fifteen years and she is doing pretty well.

She will use this new loan to buy fabrics, thread and other sewing materials. She is a founding member of the communal bank, collects payments for it, and she likes it because of the help it gives her in order to get ahead.

Her dreams are to continue working and that she always has orders for work.
