Bertha Margarita
Every 15 days, the members of the communal bank Damas de Progreso get together in the citadel of San Cristóbal in the beautiful and welcoming city of Portoviejo (aka La Ciudad de los Reales Tamarindos).

Bertha, a 50-year old woman and single mother of 4 children, lives in this city. Her children are already adults, but two of them live in her house together with her 9-year old grandson who attends school. Bertha has been working in retail for 7 years and makes a living from selling sweets, mangoes, redcurrants sold in cases with salt, and some elaborated candy and sandwiches. She uses a tricycle to go to places where people meet, such as the entrance of some schools, where she has her best customers. She works every day from 6.30am to 5.30pm and her grandson helps when he's available. This is how she gets ahead with effort and honesty.

She will use the requested loan to buy mangoes, candy, sandwiches, redcurrants and other products that she sells. She's been a member of the communal bank for 5 years and likes it for the help she gets with the loans. Her dream is to keep getting ahead.
