Julia Beatriz
The members of the "Buenos Amigos" (Good Friends) communal bank meet every two weeks in the Colegio Uruguay sector of Portoviejo, a lovely and hospitable city known as the "City of the Royal Tamarinds."

This is where we met Julia. She is 60, married, and has six children, all adults. Two of them still live in her house, but are independent. Her husband is blind and helps her in her business.

Our friend is a woman who is constantly striving, and who has always liked to work, so that she and her family can get ahead in life.

She learned dressmaking a long time ago, and thanks to this knowledge set up a small sewing workshop in her home. Here she has been gradually stocking up on merchandise to sell to her customers. She also sells clothing, costume jewelry and other items, a business in which her dear husband helps her.

She has been in her business for more than 30 years, and it is how she has been able to help her husband and raise her family.

This loan is to buy clothing and costume jewelry, as well as fabric and other materials for making her clothing. This is her first loan as part of the communal bank, and she hopes to remain in it for a very long time.

Her dream, above all, is to have good health.
