Inés María
Every other week in the canton of Rocefuerte, the members of the Rocafuerte Community Bank meet. This area is known for the delicious desserts the locals make and are popular throughout the entire country.

This is where Inés lives. She is 55 years old, married, and has three older children, one who is a single and lives at home with her. Her husband does not work due to health problems.

In order to provide for her family now that her husband can no longer work, Inés works selling snacks and beverages in a school in Rocafuerte. She sells natural juices, fruits, and healthy snacks so that the children grow up healthy. She also prepares meals for the teachers and certain students who eat lunch on campus. Currently she is only selling lunches, but only for delivery as these days there are no classes and the school is closed. For this reason she is looking for a way to make money until classes start back up and everything goes back to normal. She has been running this business for six years, which she started with her first loan.

This loan will be used to purchase fruits and other foodstuffs for preparing her lunches. Inés has been a member of the Rocafuerte Community Bank for six years, and she likes it because she was able to start her business with her first loan. Her goal is to have a restaurant located in the heart of downtown.
