Francisca Aurora
The “Los Tres Ángeles” (The Three Angels) communal bank meets every two weeks in Montecristi Canton known for its rich pre-colonial culture and for its crafts that are renown both nationally and internationally; it’s where the famous straw hats come from.

Francisca, 55, lives here. She’s married and has six children, all adults. One of her sons and a six-year-old grandson who attends school and is like a son to her live with her. Her husband is disabled and does not work.

To earn daily sustenance and seeing that her husband has been unable to work for more than 8 years, she used her savings to open a small snack bar where she sells soft-drinks, sweets, water and other snacks. She works every day because the business is home-based and despite it not being a very big business it does produce enough for her to get ahead and thanks to the loans she’s gotten she’s been able to move forward.

She will use this loan to buy soft-drinks, fried potatoes and several other snacks. She’s been in the communal bank since its beginning and likes it because of the help it’s always given her. Her dream is that her grandson becomes a good professional.
