Elena Nelly
The María Auxiliadora Communal Bank meets in Sequita parish, which belongs to Montecristi, a properous canton in the province of Manabí. It is full of hardworking people who are proud of their roots. Sequita is a parish whose residents are honest people who only know how to work and look after their families.

Elena lives here. She is 62 and is in a common-law marriage with 7 children, all adults. Three of them live with her and work with her husband in the fields.

Elena has a small chicken farm at her home. She buys the young chicks by the box, raises them for three months and then sells them live or by the pound to neighbours or delivers them to local shops. She sells a lot of chickens because she raises them on corn and so their meat is similar to creole chickens. She works for 2 or 3 hours every day and this is how they get by in life, as her husband does not earn much in his job in the fields.

Elena will use this loan to buy chickens, food and medicines so that they will grow well and give her better profits. She is a founding member of the communal bank and she likes it for the support it gives her with the loans. Her dream is to keep making progress in life.
