Narcisa Angela's story

The communal bank "Nuevo Amanecer" holds its meetings in Bajo de Montecristi in Manabí province. This is a small place surrounded by a lot of vegetation. Its inhabitants are involved in a variety of economic activities including retail trade and working in factories.

In this place we meet Narcisa, who is 38 years old, married and has 2 children. One of her children is an adult, and the other is a minor who is 15 years old and is in school. Her husband works as a driver. She went to beauty school in an institute in Manta.

Narcisa has a beauty salon in her house. There she provides haircuts, hair coloring, nail painting and other services. In addition, she works in at the residence of her customers when they request it. She tells us that she has been doing this kind of work for 5 years, but in the future she hopes to set up a complete beauty salon so that she could offer better service to her customers.

She will use this loan to buy hair dye, permanent solution and beauty products from the Avon and Yanbal lines. She has been with her communal bank for 3 years, and she enjoys the support that is provided by her fellow group members.

Her dream is to have a larger beauty salon.
