Estrella Soledad
The December 24th communal bank meets every 15 days in the Montecristi canton, known for its rich pre-colonial culture and handicrafts that are recognized at both a national and international level. It is the home of the famous panama straw hat.

This is where Señora Estrella lives. She is 55 years old, married, and has three older children from this relationship. They all still live in her home although they are already engaged. Her husband works in a factory in Manta.

With the intention of earning something for her account and using this to get ahead at home, Doña Estrella makes a living selling all kinds of clothing. She sells door to door and also out of her home, where her customers come when they want a garment. She works every day without a set schedule, sells to her customers via credit, and collects every 15 days. To buy her merchandise she goes to Guayaquil or Manta every 15 days to a month, according to her need. She has spent more than 6 years making a living through this work and it is going well.

She is going to use this loan to buy more merchandise like pants, blouses, shirts, and children's clothing. She has been in the communal bank since the beginning and likes it because the group is close and trustworthy. Her dream is to have health for herself and her family.
