Rosa Elvia
The Comunal Bank 30 de Agosto convenes in the Picoaza church in the city of Portoviejo, a place known for its commercial sector and traditional celebrations of San Pedro and San Pablo as well as for the joy of its people.

This is the place where Rosa lives. She is 51 years old, married, and has three adult children from this relationship, one of whom still lives in the house. Her spouse works for the state.

Rosa wants to earn something on her own to move ahead. She dedicates herself to selling all types of clothing and footwear through catalogs. She sells door to door and also sells from her house where she has some display cases to display her merchandise. She works every day, covering charges every 15 days. She buys her merchandise in Guayaquil every time she needs to. She has spent five years dedicating herself to this activity and it is going very well for her.

She will use this loan to buy more merchandise, such as pants, blouses, t-shirts, and footwear. She has been in the communal bank from the beginning and she likes it because its loans help her to finance her business.

Her dream is to have a big store in the center of town.
