Moncerrate Auxiliadora
In the citadel El Progreso, in the city of Portoviejo, the communal bank Illusiones meets twice a month. This is a very poor area of the city with urban marginality, that is known as the prison sector because the Portoviejo prison for women is located here.

Monserrate is 37 years old. She is a widow and from her marriage she had four children who are 18, 16, 12 and 8 years old. The oldest is at university and two of them are in school and one in primary.

She is a fighting woman who is eager to get ahead for her children, and she works selling all types of clothing, and shoes and sandals for women going from door-to-door. She works four days a week from four to five hours a day, leaving her goods on credit and collecting payment every eight days. At night she helps the children with their homework, above all the youngest. She buys her supplies in Guayaquil, going there once a month and sometimes twice a month and has been doing this activity for 15 years which is how she is bringing up the children on her own.

This loan will be used to buy clothing and shoes in Guayaquil because it is cheaper to buy there. She has been with the communal bank for three years and she likes it for the ease of getting loans.

Her dream is to have her own facility where she could sell her merchandise.
