Perfecta Virginia
The Niño Jesús De Las Orquídeas Communal Bank meets every fifteen days in the residential complex Las Orquídeas in the city of Portoviejo. This is a marginalized urban zone where people engage in diverse activities.

Here we meet Sra. Perfecta, 52, who is married and has eight children, seven of whom are adults with the youngest, 17, in school. Three of her children still live at home. Her husband is a farmer.

Perfecta, with the goal of earning her own income so that she could help with household expenses, began a business at home. She has a small farm where she raises chickens and pigs. She says that currently she gets up to 100 chickens per season, keeps them two or three months and then delivers them to traders who come to her house. She does the same with the pigs; she keeps them for awhile and when they reach a good weight she sells them to traders. She says that in this way she has been able to help with the household and move her family forward. She has been in business for more than 14 years and it has always done well.

This loan is to purchase chickens, medicine and feed for chickens and pigs. She has had three loan cycles with the Communal Bank and she likes it because the loans help her succeed.

Her dream is to see her youngest son become a good professional.
