Elizabeth Alejandrina
The “Mujeres de Lucha” (Women of Struggle) communal bank meets every fifteen days in Picoaza Parish in the city of Portoviejo, a place known for being very commercial, for its traditional feast days of Saint Peter and Saint Paul and for the cheerfulness of its people. Elizabeth, 42, lives here. She’s in a common law relationship and has five children, two adults and three who are 16, 15 and 9 years old. The three younger ones attend school; two go to secondary and the youngest is in elementary school. All her children still live at home. Her husband is a merchant. Despite her age, she’s completing the last year of high school.

Elizabeth and her husband are merchants. They sell household items like pots, dishes, spoons and all types of clothes. She sells around her neighborhood and her husband heads out to the nearby countryside to sell their products since that’s where their best customers are. They sell on credit and collect payments biweekly. They’ve been in this profession that makes it possible for them to get ahead more than 14 years.

This loan will be used to buy pots, spoons, irons and all types of clothes. She’s been in the communal bank since its beginning and likes it because she started her business with the first loan and she’s able to help her husband with the loans. Her dream is to have her own store.
