Marianita De Jesús
The members of Damas de Progreso Communal Bank meet every two weeks in the San Cristóbal community of the city of Portoviejo, a beautiful and hospitable city known as the City of the Royal Tamarind Trees.

This is where Marianita lives. She's 64 years old and married, and from this relationship has four adult children, two of whom still live in her house despite being engaged already. Her husband works in a university in the town.

Marianita makes a living as a merchant as well as being a great housewife and mother. She sells all types of clothes and costume jewelry. She sells door-to-door and works three or four days a week, either in the afternoon or the morning or when her customers need something. Her customers also go to her house when they need some garment. She leaves things on credit and charges every week or two. She goes to Guayaquil or Quito to buy merchandise when she needs it. She has been in this business for more than 20 years and it's going very well for her.

She's going to use this loan to buy pants, blouses, t-shirts, and jewelry.

She has been with the communal bank since the beginning and she likes it because she has been able to keep on improving her business with the loans. Her dream is to have a car to make her sales.
