Jenny Elizabeth
The members of the “Mejía” communal bank meet every two weeks in Mejía located a few kilometers from the city of Portoviejo, a city dedicated in large part to agriculture and to growing and selling coconuts. Jenny, 46, lives here. She’s married and has four children who are all adults now but two still live at home. Her husband works in agriculture.

To earn income of her own, Jenny has had a home-based grocery store for more than 13 years. She spends most of her time there tending to the store. At night, she also sells certain beverages and snacks she prepares herself and her husband helps her with the business at night. She works Monday through Saturday from 6:30 in the morning until 10 at night and on Sundays only works a half-day. She buys her merchandise in Portoviejo and some are delivered to her store.

This loan is to buy products like rice, sugar, detergent, among others to better stock her store with basic staples. She’s been in the communal bank for more than 6 years and likes it because of the help the loans provide. Her dream is to have a well-stocked store.
