The "Madre Para Un Futuro Mejor" communal bank meets every fortnight in the Canton of 24 De Mayo in the province of Manabí. This canton is known for it's beautiful landscapes, it's forests, it's variety of wildlife and for it's friendly and hard-working people who engage in agriculture and raise livestock.

Pilar lives here. She is 52 years old, lives in a common-law relationship from which she has 8 children. Six of them are adults and the other two are 15 and 17 years old. They both study at High school. Three children still live at their house. Her husband is a gardener.

Pilar with the intention of making some money for herself and to help her husband get ahead with the household expenses works selling clothing and shoes of all types. She sells door-to-door. With the help of her children and her mother-in-law she goes out to other places close to her community which have a good clientele where she makes her best sales. She sells on credit and collects every 8 days. She has done this for more than 10 years to help her husband as he doesn't make much money at his work.

Pilar will use the loan to buy clothing and shoes. She has been a member of the communal bank for 10 years. She likes it because the loans allow her to get ahead with her business. Her dream is to own her own home as they currently live with her mother-in-law.
