Dolores Rosario
In the city of Tosagua the communal bank Amistad meets every fifteen days. This place is known for being very dynamic, where the majority of its inhabitants make a living farming and raising animals due to it being an area with a lot of vegetation.

In this place we meet Dolores who's 54 years old. She's married and from this relationship has two children who are of age and independent. Her husband makes a living farming. She's been with the communal bank for 15 years and likes it because with the loans it helps her to get ahead.

Our friend began a business in her home with the intention of being able to obtain her own income and with this help with the expense in keeping up her home. With the help of her husband she built a chicken coop for raising chicken and tells us that currently up to 200 chicken fit, which she supports for two to three months and after hands over to merchants that come to her home. Moreover, they also use part of the loan to grow corn, yucca, and vegetables her husband has.

This loan is to buy chicken, medicine, and food for the chicken, as well as to pay for labor to collect the harvest.

Her dreams are to continue growing her farm and selling more chicken.
