Maruja Francisca
In the city of Portoviejo, the capital of [the province of] Manabí and known for many years as the city of the royal tamarinds, the members of the community bank Mujeres en Acción [Women in Action] meet every two weeks.

Señora Maruja is 74 years old and a single mother to five adult children; one of her daughters lives with her. She has been with the community bank since its beginning, and she appreciates the help that they've given her all this time.

Maruja, with the intention of earning a little for her account and using it to get ahead, works in retail. She sells all kinds of clothing and household products. She has a small shop in her home where she sells her goods, but the majority of her merchandise she sells door-to-door; she goes out three times a week to offer her products to her customers. She leaves her merchandise on credit and collects every fifteen days. She's been doing this for more than thirty years and it's gone very well for her.

She will use this loan to buy more merchandise, like pants, blouses, shirts, shoes, and other household goods.

Her dream is to get ahead in life, as far as God will allow.
