Dolores Isabel
The members of the Santa Martha Communal Bank meet every 15 days in Los Bajos de Montecristi, a city known for its diversity of traditional products like, for example, straw hats and shawls which are well known within and outside of the country,

Dolores lives in this place. She is 43 years old, is married and she has three children from this relationship: two who are older and the youngest who is 15 years old who attends high school. All of her children still live in her home. Her husband works in the fields.

Dolores is a good mother and wife. She is receiving this loan in order to help her husband so that he will use it for his business. He works manufacturing bricks (a material used to construct homes) and also in agriculture. Currently they have planted corn, but they need the loan to manufacture bricks.They will take the bricks and deliver them to merchants who come to their town, although sometimes her husband also hires a truck and brings his bricks to Losares where they request his products. They earn their living honorably this way and move their household ahead.

This loan is for buying wood, mud, sawdust and other materials that they use. This is their third cycle in the Communal Bank and they like it because the loans are fast and without too many requirements.

Their dream is to stay healthy and that their youngest son will be a professional.
