Carmen Paulina
In Los Bajos de Montecristi, a city known for its diversity of local products such as Panama hats and shawls known inside and outside the country, the members of the Banco Comunal Mujeres Por el Progreso meet twice a month.

In this place we meet Carmen, who is 49 years old, married and they have 5 children, all adults, two of them still living with her. Her husband is a driver.

Our friend is asking for a loan for her husband who has a small truck which he uses to transport freight to various tuna companies in the city of Manta. She tells us that her husband makes three or four trips per week to the city of Guayaquil, where he receives a load of tuna containers, which he then takes to the tuna businesses in Manta, for which he is paid very well. He has been doing this work for more than 15 years which has permitted him to get ahead.

This loan is to buy certain spare parts needed for the truck and fuel. She has been with the communal bank for more than 7 years and she likes it for the support they give with their loans.

Her dream is to buy a new truck.
