María Moncerrate
The 'De Colorado' community bank meets every two weeks in Colorado, in Montecristi canton. This area is noted for its rich pre-colonial culture and its handicrafts which are well known both at home and abroad. It is home to the famous Panama hat.

This is where María lives. She is 26 years old, married, and has a 5-year-old son who is in his first year of school. Her husband works for a private company.

María is a very tenacious woman who enjoys earning her own money so that she can help her husband with the household expenses. With the help of her husband, she managed to build a small shed where she raises pigs. She started out with very few animals and now has more than 70 pigs, some big and some small. She has the help of her parents and siblings in feeding and caring for the animals. She sells large and small pigs to tradespeople who come to her home to buy. She has been in this business for more than 5 years and, thanks to her work, she is able to help her husband and also her siblings as she pays them for their work which means they can help support their own households.

María will use this loan to buy feed and medicines for her pigs. She has been a member of her community bank for two loan cycles and likes it because of the benefits that the institution provides to its clients.

María's dream is to provide her young son with the best in life.
