Genny Amparo
The communal bank La Sequita holds its meetings at the Sequita Parish which belongs to Montecristi in the Manabita Canton. It is a place full of hard-working, dedicated people who are proud of their origins. La Sequita is a parish whose population is made up of honest people who only know how to work and care for their families.

This is where Genny, 48, lives. She is married and has six children, three of whom are adults, and three are ages 15, 12 and 10 and still in school. Her husband is a merchant and farmer.

Genny is taking out the loan for her husband's business. He sells fruit and vegetables in the city of Manta, where he works as a street vendor selling from a 3-wheel cart. He sells his own produce, mainly vegetables and fruit, and also buys items from the wholesale market in Manta. He works Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, and the rest of the week does his farming. This has been his source of income for 15 years, allowing him to provide for all of his family.

The loan will be used to buy fruit, vegetables, fertilizer and seeds to plant because the winter planting season is approaching. Genny has been in the communal bank since it began and she likes the fact that the loans are so helpful.

Her dream is to open a grocery store in Manta.
