Port-Chone Group's story

The canton of Chone stands out because its inhabitants are farmers, merchants and work raising animals. The leading product is cheeses which are recognized for their unequaled flavor and quality at the national and international level. In this city, the Chone loan group meets in the house of the group's president. The group is made up of 11 women and 2 men.

Diana is 20 years old, single, does not have children, and lives in her parents' house. Diana works selling a variety of clothing for women, men, and children. She has had this business for 3 years, she sells as a travelling salesperson in the place of La Cagua and Chone where her relatives, friends and acquaintances are. She works from Monday to Friday from 10:00 to 12:00 or later. A friend helps her make her sales rounds. She leaves items on credit and collects weekly. She goes to purchase her merchandise in Portoviejo in the distributors who give her a good price.

With this new loan, she will purchase t-shirts, blouses, pajamas, jeans, Bermuda shorts, shorts, etc. She likes the loans because the interest is low and it has medical insurance. Her dream is to have a retail space where she will have a lot of merchandise.
