Mercy Yanet
The “Camino Al Progreso” (Road to Progress) communal bank meets every two weeks in Montecristi Canton that’s known for its pre-colonial culture and for its crafts that are renowned both nationally and internationally; it’s where the famous straw hats come from.

Mercy, 55, lives here. She’s married and has four children who are all adults now but still live at home. Her husband’s a merchant.

She has a small restaurant at home where she works every day cooking breakfast and lunch. She always varies the menu in order to insure that her customers feel satisfied enjoying her delicious food. She works there with help from her children who are in charge of serving and collecting payment for the dishes while she’s busy in the kitchen cooking and plating the dishes. She’s been in business more than 9 years and does very well.

She will use the loan to buy some tables, chairs and foodstuffs to prepare the meals. She’s been in the communal bank since its beginning and is the sergeant at arms; she likes it because the loans help her very much. Her goal is to continue forward and to have more customers.
