Alejandrina's story

In the parish of Guale, in Jipijapa canton, the principal product for production and sale is rice. Its typical dishes are rice with stew and roasted meat, corn tortillas, tamales, fish balls, and baked beef and pork.

Alejandrina is 61 years old, married, and has 7 children who are all adults and independent. Her husband is a farmer. They live in their own house.

Alejandrina has an eatery where she sells lunches from 9:00 to 2:00 or until everything she has prepared is sold. She has had this business for 43 years. She also has a small miscellaneous shop where she sells a little of everything such as accessories, gift decorations, creams, deodorants, costume jewelry, etc. With this new loan, she will purchase nail polish, bracelets, pencils, notebooks, pens, folders, etc.

She has been in the loan group for 16 loan cycles and she likes them because her business has grown and the group of friends is very close-knit and responsible with the payments. Her dream is to have her own retail space to continue with the eatery and that it is large to serve her customers better.
