Elena Nelly
The “Mary the Helper” Communal Bank meets in La Sequita parish, Manabita Canton, which is part of Montecristi. The canton is full of hard-working dedicated people who are proud of their roots. La Sequita is a parish with gentle, honest inhabitants who only know how to work and dedicate themselves to their families.

Elena, 61 years old, lives there in a free union which has produced 7 children, all adults now; and 3 still live with her and work alongside her husband in the countryside.

Our friend Elena operates a small chicken farm at her house. She buys cartons of young baby chicks and raises them for 3 months, then sells them on foot or by the pound to neighbors, or delivers them to local stores. Elena says her chickens sell well, because she raises them on corn, which makes their meat similar to that of creole chickens. Elena works every day for 2 or 3 hours. Her husband also has farm plots planted in corn and peanuts, which are now being harvested.

This loan will be used to buy more chickens and feed for them, and to pay workers for harvesting the crop. Elena is a founding member of this communal bank and she likes it for the help it offers with the loans.

Elena's dream is to have a large farm with modern technology.

Trabaja todos los días de dos a tres horas por día. Su esposo también tiene sembríos de maíz y maní lo cual está en plena recolección.

Este crédito lo va a emplear en comprar más pollos, alimentos para estos y para pagar mano de obra para la recolección de la cosecha. Es socia fundadora del Banco Comunal y le gusta por la ayuda que le dan con los créditos.
