Alexandra Rosario
In the beautiful city of Bahía De Caraquez, which is known for its beaches, its cuisine, and the warmth of its people, the members of the community bank Los Laureles meet every two weeks.

Alexandra is 35 years old and has a common-law marriage from which she has three daughters, who are 5, 11, and 12 years old. The oldest is in high school and the youngest attend primary school. Her husband is a farmer.

In order to earn her own money and help her husband with the household expenses, and seeing that he did not make a lot working in the fields, she decided to open a business. She sells clothing door to door from catalogs. She travels around the city visiting her customers, collecting what she is owed, and taking new orders. She has had this business for six months and she says it is going very well despite the short time she has been doing this work.

She will use this loan to pay for an order of pants, blouses, shirts, and children's clothing. She has been in the community bank for a year and she likes it for the help it provides.

Her dream is to give her daughters a very good education.
