Rosa María's story

The Andrés de Vera de Miraflores Credit Group meets every fifteen days in Andrés de Vera Parish in the city of Portoviejo, the capital of Manabí, which has been known for many years as “The City of the Royal Tamarind Trees”. Rosa lives here. She is 42 years old, and married, with two children from this relationship. One is older and studying in the university, and the younger one, age 13, is in high school. She also has a foster daughter, whom she has had since she was very, very small, and who is now 8 years old and studying in school. Her husband is a furniture maker. Rosa is taking out a loan in order to help her husband, so that he may invest it in his business. He has a small furniture making shop where he shapes the wood, and makes all kinds of furniture, such as beds, chests of drawers, bunk beds, dining sets, doors, and other products. He makes his furniture on order from his customers, who know the quality of his work. He has had his shop for 17 years, and this is how he fights so that his family may want for nothing. This loan is for the purchase of wood, paint, and other materials for making his furniture. She has been in the credit group since the beginning, and she likes it because she can help her husband with the loans. Her dream is to give the best to her children.
