Orfelia Del Carmen
The “Amistad” communal bank meets every two weeks in the city of Tosagua. This place is known for being very dynamic, where most of the inhabitants devote themselves to agriculture and raising animals. It is an area with a lot of vegetation.

This is where Orfelina, age 61, lives. She is in a common-law marriage, and they have six adult children. One daughter lives in her house. Her husband works at a restaurant.

Our friend is a housewife. She sells Avon products (beauty products, cosmetics, perfume, and women’s accessories) in order to get her own resources to use to help her husband with the household expenses. She sells the Avon products door to door.

She works every day because she has a small chicken farm at her house. She can have up to 100 chickens on the farm per season. This way she earns something extra without leaving home. She has been selling Avon products for eight years, and she has had the chicken farm for the same amount of time.

This loan is to buy perfume, creams, and cosmetics, and to buy feed, and medicine for the chickens. She has been in her communal bank for over ten years. She likes it because of the help of the loans. Her dreams are to get ahead, and, above all, to have good health.

Los mismos que vende puerta a puerta, ella trabaja todos los días ya que en su casa tiene una pequeña granja de pollos en la cual mete hasta 100 pollos por temporada con lo cual se gana algo extra sin salir de su casa. Tiene más de 8 años que se dedica a sus ventas y a la granja de pollos.
