Jessica Alexandra
The Communal Bank "Virgen Del Rosario" (Virgin of the Rosary) meets every fifteen days in Colorado in the canton of Montecristi, which is known for its rich precolonial culture and for its artisanry, which is recognized nationally and internationally. Here, most of the inhabitants work at making buttons out of ivory nut, other crafts, and business in general.

Jessica, 28 years old, lives here. She is married, and she and her husband have three children, aged 11, 10 and 6. The oldest studies in high school and the two younger children are also in school. Her husband works in a factory in Manta.

Since her husband's wages did not cover the household expenses, Jessica began a business six years ago to help meet the family's needs. She opened a small diner in their house, and every morning she makes delicious fish and shrimp ceviches and at night she sells fritada, a traditional dish of fried pork, along with juices, sodas, and other drinks that her clients prefer. She works everyday, mostly alone, but sometimes with her husband's help when he isn't working.

This loan will be used to buy fish and other supplies for making her dishes. She has been in the communal bank for two years and she appreciates the help that the loans have given her. Her goals are to continue getting ahead in her business and provide a good education for her children.
