Gladis Carlota
The María José Communal Bank meets every two weeks in the Picoaza parish in the city of Portoviejo, a place known for its commercial district, for its traditional celebrations of Saint Peter and Saint Paul and for the happiness of its people.

Gladis lives in this place. She is 45 years old and is married and from that relationship she has four children, three adults and the youngest is 13 years old and is studying in high school. Three of the children still live in her home. Her husband makes a living in business.

Gladis would like credit to help her husband who makes a living selling fruits and vegetables. He has a market stall in the city in which he goes to day after day to sell his products. She sometimes accompanies her husband to help him in his work, but she currently cannot because she has a problem with her eyes. She has lost almost all of her vision which is why she cannot help her husband. The business is over 20 years old and with it he has honorably helped his family get ahead in life.

This credit is to invest in fruits and vegetables and that way to be able to continue selling their products. She has been with the Communal Bank for 15 years and she likes it because of the help that they have always offered with credits.

Her dream is to be able to recover her vision. She is already in treatments to be able to have an operation.
