Angela Justina
The "La Sultana" communal bank meets every two weeks in the Jipijapa area, which is known by the name of the sultana coffee. The area is known for its extensive coffee plantations that produce a unique coffee, its food and its warm people.

Ángela is the founding member of the communal bank and she likes it for the help provided through loans that allow people to prosper in their businesses and to improve their financial situation. She is 74 years old and her husband died some years ago, leaving her a widow with four children. The children are now all adults but three still live with her.

In order to prosper along with her family following the death of her husband, Ángela continued with the business that her husband had, a grocery store run out of their house. The store sells all sorts of products, such as rice, sugar, oil, detergent and fruit and vegetables. She works every day from 6am until 8pm, or sometimes later. Her children help when they can, or when they are free - they also work. She has had the business for more than 20 years and it is with this business that she has been able to prosper with her children.

This loan will be used to stock up the store. She will buy rice, sugar, oil, detergent and cold meat, as well as other essential products.

Her dream is to have good health so that she can continue to do well.
