Rossana Maribel
Every two weeks, the members of the 'Mujeres por el Progreso' community bank meet in lower Montecristi. Montecristi is a city which is known for its diversity of traditional products such as, for example, the Panama hat which is well known both in Ecuador and abroad.

This is where Rossana lives. Rossana is 29 years old, married, and has a 9-year-old son from her relationship. Her son attends school and her husband works in a factory in Manta.

In addition to being a very good mother and wife, Rossana also studies civil engineering at a university in Manta. In order to cover the cost of her studies and seeing that her husband was not able to meet these expenses, she decided to set up a business selling shoes and sandals door to door in her town. She also sells to her fellow students at university. She leaves her products on credit and collects payment every two weeks. She has been running her business for four years.

Rossana will use this loan to buy shoes and sandals. She has been a member of her community bank for more than four years and likes it because she used her first loan to start her business.

Rossana's dreams are to complete her studies and become a successful professional.
