Erita Argentina
In the Quiroga district of the city of Calceta, the majority of people work in agriculture, farming, raising animals and selling their goods in town. The Quiroga Community Bank is located in the Quiroga district, and the group members meet every 15 days.

Erita is 51 years old, and lives in Quiroga. She and her husband have four children, two of whom are now grown, and one of whom lives at home. Erita's husband is a merchant.

Erita is a very hardworking woman who has always held a job because she likes earning her own salary and supporting her family. She makes a living operating a small business selling sweets at a stand in the city center of Calceta. Her stand is right next to her husband's stand, where he sells a wide range of refreshing beverages. Her most frequent customers are those people who are traveling to nearby cities. Erita works seven days a week, from 7:00 in the morning until 5:00 in the afternoon, and she buys her merchandise in Junín. She has over 25 years of experience in her trade, and enjoys her work, especially because she gets to work alongside her beloved husband.

With the support from this loan, Erita plans to purchase merchandise to stock her business as well as her husband's business, so that he can buy syrup and fruit for making his juices and beverages.

Erita has been a member of the Community Bank for three years now, and she is grateful for the support she has received there. Her dream is to stay healthy and happy so that she can keep working.
