Ayda Celeste
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.

Aida, 55, lives here. She’s married but has been unable to have children. Her husband is a taxi driver. She’s been in the communal bank since its beginning and likes it because she’s been able to finance her work with the loans.

In addition to taking care of her home and husband, she also makes crafts out of foamy in various shapes and motifs. People have asked her for items for children’s parties for a long time now and she loves what she does because she makes many children happy with the items she makes. Most of the things she makes are done to order days in advance in order not to disappoint her customers. She works every day for hours and when she has lots of work almost the entire day. She’s been in this line of work for ten years and it’s brought her many economic and spiritual benefits.

This loan is to buy more materials she needs to make her works like foamy, paint and glue, among other things she uses. Her dream is for her and her husband to be in good health.
