Maryori Del Rosio's story

Mayori has been a member of the La Sequita communal bank for 15 cycles and she has done well with the loans received. She lives in La Sequita parish, part of Montecristi canton, Manabí province. She, like most residents of this beautiful corner of Manabí, is a very hard-working, responsible woman.

She has been married for 22 years and has 5 children who are 22, 18, 17, 16 and 12 years of age. They have a cabinet making shop next to their home where they make wood-based items like furniture, chairs and beds. Their specialty, however, is making cabinets for sewing machines. She has had this business for 25 years in her home in the same parish. She told us that the business was inherited from her in-laws. Her husband’s family had always been in this line of work. She, her husband and her children continue running it until the present time; this is how they have supported the family.

Mayori will use this new loan to buy materials like laurel wood, which is the wood they use the most, as well as other supplies like nails, paint and tools.

She has quite a few customers to satisfy so work starts very early from Monday through Saturday. They own a vehicle that makes it possible for her husband to deliver items on time to their customers.
