Neyda Narcisa's story

In the Crucita parish of the Portoviejo canton there is a place known as los Arenales. There, the members of the loan group Fe y Esperanza get together every fifteen days. This place is known for its beautiful beaches, for its gastronomy and for the warmth of its people. Here lives Neyda, who is 53 years old and maintains a common-law marriage from which she has four older children. Two of them still live at home. Her husband makes a living fishing. Neyda is a hard-working woman that does everything possible to earn something and improve her quality of life with her income. She has a small farm where she works raising chickens and native hens, but her biggest income comes from selling fish. She buys sardines which are a very abundant fish on the coasts that surround this beautiful place. She buys them from the fishermen in the area, and later washes the fish and marinates them with lemon to deliver them to shop-keepers or clients, in particular those that come to her house to buy this product which she is very thankful for. She will use this new loan to buy food and medicine for the animals, as well as sardines to sell. She has been in the loan group for 11 years and she likes it because it is how she finances her business. Her dream is to be in good health.
