Lucrecia
The members of Communal Bank Patito Donald ("Little Donald Duck") meet every fifteen days in the county of Rocafuerte. The area is known for the delicious candies made by the much-renowned locals, and for the warmth of its friendly, hardworking people.

Lucrecia lives here. She is sixty years old and married and has six children from this relationship. All are grown, and only one of them still lives with her. Her husband makes his living in agriculture.

Our friend, with the help of her husband and a loan from three years ago, constructed a small shed for raising chickens. She started with little and today puts up as many as two hundred chickens each season. She tells us that she buys them when they are small and keeps them for two to three months, time enough for them to have good growth so that she can sell them later at fairs or on foot to people in the area or to merchants who come to the house.

This loan is to buy chickens and feed and medicines so that they can have a good development. She has been with the communal bank since its beginning and she likes it for the sense of cooperation that exists among the group.

Her dream is to have good health for herself and her own.

Nuestra amiga con la ayuda de su esposo y también con la de uno de los créditos hace tres años atrás construyo un pequeño galpón para criar pollos de granja, empezó con poco y hoy mete hasta 200 pollos por temporada, nos cuenta que estos los compra desde pequeños y los mantiene por dos a tres meses, tiempo adecuado para que tengan un buen desarrollo para luego venderlos ya sea por libras o en pie a personas de su localidad o a comerciantes que llegan hasta su casa.

Este crédito es para comprar pollos y alimentos y medicinas para que estos tengan un buen desarrollo. Esta desde el inicio en el Banco Comunal y le gusta por la unión que hay en el grupo.

Su sueño es tener buena salud para ella y los suyos.
