Irene Gissela
The "Virgen Del Rosario" communal bank meets every two weeks in the Colorado area of Montecristi canton, known for its rich pre-colonial culture, and for its crafts, recognized at the national and international level. Here, the majority of the inhabitants work making tagua buttons, in crafts, and in commerce in general.

Here we met Irene, who is 28, married, and has three children, ages 9, 5 and the youngest,1 month. The two eldest go to school. Her husband is a laborer.

Our friend is a very good mother and wife, who in order to earn something and with this help her husband with the household expenses, makes and sells fish meal. She works Monday to Friday making this product.

She tells us that she travels to Manta to buy the fish that is not used in the processing of tuna, to then transport it to her home and process it until it becomes fish meal, which she then delivers to merchants that export it overseas, where this product is used a great deal. She has been doing this for more than ten years, and it has gone well.

This loan is to buy fish for making fish meal. She has been in the communal bank for six loan cycles, and likes it because of the help they give her with the loans.

Her dream is to have a large plant, so that she can export these products herself.

Nuestra amiga es una muy buena madre y esposa que para lograr ganar algo y con esto ayudar a su marido con los gastos del hogar se dedica a la elaboración y venta de harina de pescado. Trabaja de lunes a viernes en la elaboración de este producto, nos cuenta que ella se desplaza a Manta para comprar el pescado que no se utiliza 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 donde este producto es muy utilizado. Ella lleva más de 10 años en esta actividad y le ha ido bien.

Este crédito es para comprar pescado para elaborar la harina. Está en el Banco Comunal desde hace 6 ciclos y le gusta por la ayuda que le dan con los créditos.
