María Auxiliadora
In the region of Rocafuerte a group of associates known as the Banco Comunal Mujeres Organizadas meets every 15 days. This area is known for the delicious sweets that the locals make and that are known all over the country.

This is also where Mrs. Maria lives. She is 61 years old, married, and had 10 children, who are all now adults. Two of her children still live with her and her husband is a farmer.

Maria wants to help her husband with household expenses and because he doesn't earn much in the fields, she decided to make and sell sweets. Every morning at 5am she wakes up to begin preparing her sweets so she can give them to sellers who take them to other regions and cities all over the country. One of her children helps her in this. She has been doing this for more than 30 years and it was her mother who taught her how to make these sweets. With this small business, she is able to earn enough to contribute to the well being of her family.

This loan will be used to purchase sugar, fruit, eggs, milk and other ingredients needed to make her sweets. She has been with this communal bank for 5 years and she likes it because the loans help her to improve and get ahead.

Her dream is to continue to improve her life and to enjoy her health.
