Elena Filadelfia De La Cruz
The communal bank "María Inmaculada" meets every 15 days in the parish of La Sequita in Montecristi, a place known both nationally and internationally for its famous straw hat.

This is where Elena, 63, lives. She is married and had six children, two of whom passed away and the other four are grown up and live independently. Her husband is a farmer.

In order to help her husband with the household expenses, Elena raises pigs and chickens which she buys when they are young. She fattens them for three or four months and then sells them to merchants who visit her home. She has been in business for 40 years and, thanks to her work, there has always been food on her table even when her husband was out of work.

This loan will be used to buy feed and medicines for the chickens and pigs. She has been in the communal bank since its beginnings and likes the support she receives through the loans.

Her goal is for her and her family to stay healthy and continue working.
