The “8 de Mayo” communal bank meets every 15 days in the beautiful city of Portoviejo, the capital of Manabí, and known as the City of the Valley. It is a city with a warm climate, lovely women, and a great variety of food.

Sonia is 59 years old. She is married and has three adult children, two of whom still live with her. Her husband is a farmer.

She is a very hardworking woman. To help her husband with the household expenses, since he doesn’t earn much from his farming work, she started a small restaurant in their house. From Monday through Saturday, most of the lunches she makes are for pick-up, since her clients order ahead of time. On Sunday she makes food for general sale, since many people come to the neighborhood on that day. She works with her children’s help, and on some occasions her husband helps her too. She has had this business for more than 8 years and it is going very well for her because her food is delicious and she makes it with love.

She will use this loan to buy rice, meat, fish, and other ingredients for the preparation of her foods. She has been in the communal bank for 14 years and she likes it because it of the support it has provided during all this time.

Her dreams are to continue working in her business and to have good health, both for herself and her family.
