The communal bank Maria Monserrate meets every two weeks in the Montecristi canton, which is known for its rich precolonial culture and for its handicrafts, which are known at a national and international level. It is the location of the famous hats of toquilla straw.

Señora Maura lives here. She is 66 years old. She is married and has seven adult children, one of whom still lives with her. Her husband works in the town of Montecristi.

Doña Maura has vision problems, but she is a very hard-working woman who, in spite of her problem, tries to earn something on her own account. She works in commerce, for which she has a shop in her house where she sells water, sodas, beer, and other beverages. She works alone every day, and sometimes her daughter who lives nearby helps her. She has had her business for more than 15 years. It allows her to earn something that she can use to buy her medicines and also to help her husband with the expenses that the household generates.

This loan is to buy water, sodas, beer, and colas. She has been a member of the communal bank since its beginning, and she likes it because they have always helped her in spite of her vision problem.

Her dream is to move forward.
