Jacinta Narcisa
Every two weeks, the members of the 'Unión y Solidaridad' community bank meet in San Pablo parish, in the city of Portoviejo, the capital of Manabí. For many years, this city has been known as the 'City of the Royal Tamarind Trees'.

This is where Jacinta lives. Jacinta is 50 years old, married, and has two adult children from her marriage. One of her children still lives with her. Her husband is a doorman.

Jacinta earns some money of her own with which she helps contribute toward her household expenses. She has a couple of different businesses. She has a small pen at home where she raises chickens which she delivers to salespeople when they have reached an appropriate weight and size. She also has a business selling colas, ice, water and delicious iced treats which she makes herself. She started her businesses with the first loan she received from her community bank four years ago and things have gone very well.

Jacinta will use this loan to buy chicken feed, soda, milk, fruit and sugar for making iced treats. She has been a member of her community bank for more than four years and she likes it because she used a loan from the bank to start her business which allows her to earn money. Her dream is to own a bar.
