María Sarita
The communal bank “La Negrita,” meets every fifteen days in the Montecristi Canton, an area known for its rich pre-colonial culture and for its handicrafts that are nationally and internationally recognized. It is the home of the famous Panama hat.

This is where Maria lives. She is 50 years old. It’s been several years since her husband passed away, but she has 4 children from this marriage. They are all grown, but they still live with her in spite of the fact that they are already engaged.

Several years ago Maria opened a small restaurant in her home in order to get ahead and to cover the household expenses, since she is alone without the support of her husband. She makes delicious dishes, and she works every day, all day since she makes breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snacks. She has an employee that works with her that she pays weekly for their work. She has had this restaurant for 6 years and it has gone well for her since her clients prefer her because of the way she flavors the foods.

She will use this loan to purchase rice, meat, fish, and other staples to prepare the food. She has been with the communal bank since the beginning, and she likes it because the loans have allowed her to advance forward.

Her goal is to move forward with her business.
