Nancy Biolinda
In Mejía, located a few kilometers from the city of Portoviejo, a city where people mostly work in agriculture and growing and selling coconuts, the communal bank “Corazón Mejía” meets twice a month.

Nancy lives here. She is 42 years old and is a widow since her dear husband died many years ago. Through this relationship she has two sons who are 17 and 10 years old, and they were her comfort during difficult moments of her life. They are school students.

Nancy, with the intention of earning something on her own and thus being able to get ahead in the household, works in business, selling all types of clothing, sheets, and costume jewelry when her customers place an order for it. She sells from door to door and she also sells at home where she has a small shop. Her customers request many orders and she always brings the selected merchandise. She buys the merchandise by going to Guayaquil, going once or twice a month depending on what she needs. She has more than six years experience in this business as after her husband died she had to bring up her children in an honorable way.

She will use this loan to buy more merchandise such as pants, blouses, t-shirts, sheets and costume jewelry. She has been with the communal bank since the beginning and she likes the assistance it has given her to get ahead.

Her dream is to see her children complete their education and become good professionals.
