Angela Concepción
In the parrish of Quiroga in the city of Calceta, a town where the people make a living largely through agriculture, raising animals, and selling their products, the Quiroga Communal Bank gets together every 15 days.

This is where Señora Ángela lives. She is 62 years old, and has been a widow for several years but from the relationship has seven children; all of whom are older, though two of her daughters who are single still live with her. For several years, Doña Angela studied confectionery and baking in the University of Manabí where she got her degree, and today she has a shop where she makes and sells the most delicious sandwiches and cakes in the entire area. She is very proud of what she does because everything that she does, she does with love. She prepares buffets for parties and for any social engagement, and on the weekends she also makes and sells food. She works every day in the afternoons and on weekends she works all day; sometimes her two daughters help her when they return from their studies. She has spent more than 12 years with her business through which she earns a livelihood, and she loves her business.

She will use this loan to buy materials like flour, sugar, eggs, milk, lard, etc. for making sandwiches. She has been with the communal bank for more than 11 years and likes it because it is always attentive to the needs of its members. Her goal is to have a more industrialized business in order to take her products to other cities.
