Shirley Leticia
In a community called Pachinche, which belongs to the parish of Colon in the city of Portoviejo, a place known for its hardworking people who work in agriculture and livestock, the members of the "Damas Emprendedoras de Pachinche" ("Women Entrepreneurs of Pachinche") communal bank meet every fifteen days.

Shirley, 39, lives in this community. She is in a common-law marriage from which she has three children, ages 11, 14, and 16. The two older children are in high school and the youngest is in elementary school. Her husband is a cabinetmaker.

Shirley is a housewife who does embroidery work to earn her own money. She makes many embroidery designs, which she gives to a person who sells them in other cities. With a loan she received some time ago, she also built a shed where she raises chickens and pigs. This gives her very good earnings which help her to improve her life and keep moving forward.

She will use this loan to buy feed and medicine for her pigs and chickens to ensure their healthy growth. She has been with the communal bank since its foundation, and she enjoys it because of the help the bank gives her as well as her fellow members.

Her dream is to continue growing her business.
