Paulina Del Rocio
In the city of Tosagua the communal bank Mujeres Al Progreso [Women for Progress] meets every fortnight. This place is known for being very dynamic, and most of the inhabitants work in agriculture or rearing animals, as there is a lot of vegetation in the area. 33-year-old Paulina lives here. She is married and from this relationship she has 2 daughters aged 7 and 2. The older one goes to primary school. Paulina's husband is a security guard.

In order to help with the household expenses Paulina runs a business. Fifteen years ago through sheer hard work she managed to set up a small provisions shop in her home and with the help of the loans she has been able to move the business forward. In it she sells all sorts of products such as rice, sugar, oil, detergents, fruit and vegetables as well as water, fizzy drinks and other items. She spends all day in her small shop and only leaves for short periods of time to do a few household tasks but if customers arrive she drops everything as her customers are more important.

Paulina will use the loan to buy more stock for her shop. She will buy rice, sugar, oil and other provisions which she sells in the shop. She is a founder member of the communal bank and she likes it because of the help the loans give them. Her goals are to keep progressing in her business and for her shop to keep on growing.
