Nila Genny's story

The communal bank María Auxiliadora meets in the Sequita parish, which belongs to the prosperous Montecristi canton, full of dedicated, hard-working people who are proud of their roots. Sequita is a parish whose inhabitants are honest people that only know to work and to be dedicated their families.

Señora Nila is a founding associate of the Communal Bank and she likes the facilities that the Bank offers to make payments and the fringe benefits that the institution offers. She is 43 years of age, married and has three children who are already grown. Two of them still live with her and one of her children suffers from attacks of epilepsy. Her husband works in Guayaquil.

She is dedicated to commerce. She sells clothes of all types. She travels through the area with her products, which she delivers mostly to fill orders eagerly anticipated by her clients. She works four days per week, accepting credit and charging every fifteen days or weekend according to the preference of her clients. She purchases her merchandise in Guayaquil, taking advantage of the trips her husband makes to go and buy - generally at the end of the month.

This loan will be used to buy merchandise in Guayaquil since she has some orders. Her dreams are to see her son recover from his illness and to continue working.
