Rocío Valeria
Picoaza is certified as one of the indigenous settlements of the Manteña culture. This urban parish is located only 10 minutes from the city of Portoviejo, capital of Manabi. Here is where the members of the María Asunción communal bank meet every two weeks.

This is where Rocío lives. She is 19, married, and has a baby who is barely 9 months old. Her husband is a construction worker. Rocío is a housewife who, seeing that her husband does not have enough for the household expenses, works as a vendor. She sells all types of clothing, and does this door-to-door.

She works every day, especially in the mornings, as she takes advantage of those hours when her mother can take care of her baby. She buys her merchandise in Portoviejo and Guayaquil. She has been in this business for more than a year, and it is going very well.

She is going to use this loan to buy pants, shirts, blouses and especially children's clothing. She has been a member of the communal bank for three loan cycles and likes it, as thanks to the first loan, she started her business. Her dream is to have her own home, as she lives with family members.
