Elizabeth Alejandrina
The "Mujeres de Lucha [Fighting Women]" communal bank meets every fifteen days in the Picoaza parish of Portoviejo, a place known for being very commercial, for its traditional San Pedro and San Pablo Fiestas, and for the joy of its people.

Here lives Elizabeth, who is 43 and is in a common-law marriage from which she has five children. Two of the children are older, and the three younger ones, 17, 16, and 11, are in school. Her husband is a businessman.

Elizabeth and her husband earn their living in business. They sell home products, traveling around selling pots, plates, spoons, and all kinds of clothing. While Elizabeth is selling locally, her husband travels around to cities in the eastern part of Ecuador, because that's where the best clients are. They sell on credit and collect every fifteen days. They've been in business for more than fifteen years and it has allowed them to get ahead.

Elizabeth will use this loan to buy pots, spoons, plates, and all manner of clothing. She's been with the bank from the beginning and likes it because she started her business with her first loan. Her dream is to have her own grocery store.
