Aurora Pastora
In the parish of Quiroga within the city of Calceta, there is a town where the people spend most of their time farming, raising animals, and selling their products. The Communal Bank "Quiroga" meets here every 15 days.

It is also in this place where Sra. Aurora lives. She is 48 years old, married, and has five children but one of them has been deceased for a few years. Three of her children are adults and her youngest one is 14 years old, is in school, and lives at home. The other children are already independent. Her husband is a merchant.

Doña Aurora and her husband engage in different business activities so that they can provide everything they need for their household. While she spends time raising chickens and pigs, her husband is busy farming and buying and selling fruit. He travels to farms in order to buy local products such as oranges, tangerines, lemons, watermelons, melons, and other fruit. Her husband delivers the fruit to Portoviejo, but he also ships these products once a week to the city of Quito where he is able to sell them at a better price. In the meantime, Aurora raises her animals and delivers them to the merchants when they are ready to be sold. Both of them work tirelessly day after day so that they can get ahead.

This loan will be used to buy fruits and also feed for her chickens and pigs. Aurora has been with her Communal Bank for more than nine years and enjoys the assistance she has received. Her dreams include having a truck so that her husband can deliver his products.
