María Elizabeth
At Los Bajos de Montecristi, city known for its diversity of local products and crafts such as toquilla straw hats (Panama hat) known in and outside the country, the members of the community bank “Women for Progress” get together every 15 days.

This is where Maria lives, she is 30 years old, married and has two children ages eight and seven, her kids are in school. Her husband works occasionally.

Knowing that her husband doesn’t have a stable job, Maria used the little resources that she had and with her first loan, she built a small pen in her house and bought chickens to raise, she currently has 100 chickens, which she raises until they are ready for consumption and she sells to merchants that come to buy at her house or to neighbors, she either sells by the pound or by unit, depending on what her customers need.
This is how her and her family get ahead when her husband doesn’t get work, and it’s attributable to the loans the Foundation has provided to them.

This loan is to buy chickens, feed and medicine. She has been with the community bank for 4 years and she likes it because she gets ahead with the loans.

Her dream is to provide her kids with the best.

En este lugar vive la señora María, tiene 30 años de edad, está casada y de esta relación tienen dos hijos de 8 y 7 años que estudian en escuela. Su esposo trabaja ocasionalmente.

Doña María sabiendo que su esposo no tiene trabajo seguro desde hace un tiempo atrás con los pocos recursos que tenia y con ayuda de su primer crédito construyo un pequeño corral en su casa y compro pollos para la cría, actualmente tiene cien pollos los cuales los cría hasta que estén listos para el consumo y luego entrega a comerciantes que llegan hasta su casa o vende a vecinos de la zona ya sea en pie o por libras de acuerdo a lo que necesiten sus clientes. Es así como ella y su familia salen adelante cuando su esposo no tiene trabajo y esto gracias a los créditos que la Fundación les ha brindado.

Este crédito es para comprar pollos, alimentos y medicinas para los pollos. Lleva más de 4 años en el Banco Comunal y le gusta porque con los créditos sale adelante.

Su sueño es darles lo mejor a sus hijos.
