Manuela Idaelba
The communal bank Virgen del Rosario [Virgin of the Rosary] gets together every fifteen days in Colorado in the canton of Montecristi. This area is known for its rich precolonial culture and for its nationally and internationally recognized arts and crafts. The majority of the residents make a living by making buttons of tagua [a nut with an ivory like interior], crafts and general trade.

Here we met Manuela, she is 57 years old and married. Of this relationship they have five children, all grown and two still live with them. Her husband makes a living in agriculture.

Our friend is a good mother and wife that in her house has a little farm where in season she breeds up to 100 chickens so she can make money and help her husband with the expenses of the household. In addition, she also makes a living producing and selling fish flour. She works everyday in both activities, and she shares that she goes to Manta to buy the fish not used in the making of tuna, to later bring it all the way to her house and process it to make the fish flour. She then delivers the flour to merchants that export it abroad. She has 8 years of experience in this activity and it has gone well for her.

This loan is to buy food for the chickens and fish to make the flour. Manuela has been with the communal bank from the beginning and she likes it because the help of the loans keep her going. Her dream is to have good health.

Aquí conocimos a la señora Manuela, tiene 57 años de edad, está casada y de esta relación tienen cinco hijos ya todos mayores de edad, dos de ellos aun viven en su casa. Su esposo se dedica a la agricultura.

Nuestra amiga es una muy buena madre y esposa que en su casa para ganar algo y con esto ayudar a su marido con los gastos del hogar tiene una pequeña granja donde cría hasta 100 pollos por temporada, además de esto también se dedica a la elaboración y venta de harina de pescado. Trabaja todos los días en ambas actividades, nos cuenta que ella se desplaza a Manta para comprar el pescado que no se utilizan para fabricar el atún, para luego trasladarlos hasta su casa y procesarlos hasta hacer la harina de pescado, la misma que luego entrega a comerciantes que la exportan al extranjero. Lleva 8 años en esta actividad y le ha ido bien.

Este crédito es para comprar comida para los pollos y pescado para elaborar la harina. Está en el Banco Comunal desde sus inicios y le gusta por la ayuda que le dan con los créditos para salir adelante.

Su sueño es tener buena salud.
