Edith Marlene
The Guillermo Balda Communal Bank meets every 15 days in Canton Montecristi, which is know for its rich pre-colonial culture and for its handicrafts that are known at the national and international levels. It is the place with the famous straw sombreros.

Edith lives in this place. She is 56 years old, married, and has six children, all of whom are grown. One of them still lives with her. Her husband is sick and does not work.

Besides being a great mother and wife, she also is a businesswoman, selling all types of clothes. She sells door-to-door. She also sells out of her home, where she has display cases and where her customers come to make their purchases. She works off of orders, so the majority of the clothes that she brings back from her travels is to deliver (to her customers). She works three days during the week, as well as on the weekends. She sells on credit and collects payments every 15 days. She's had this business for five years, and this is how the family has been able to make progress.

This loan will be used to purchase more merchandise such as slacks, blouses, t-shirts, and children's clothes. She has been with the communal bank since the beginning, and she likes it because of the help the loans always provide her.

Her dreams are to make progress and for her husband to get better.
