Yolanda Marilu's story

In the Crucita area of Portoviejo the members of the Crucita Community Bank get together. This area is known for the beautiful beaches surrounding this lovely place. The beaches are very visited by local and foreign tourists and is known as "Crucita the Beautiful".

Here we met Mrs. Yolanda. She is 30 years old, married, and has two children who are 9 and 6 years old and study in school. Her husband has an auto mechanic shop.

Our friend is a very good housewife who has requested the loan for her husband to use in his business. He has an auto mechanic shop, but also sells oil and certain car parts from his shop. He works every day and has been doing this work for more than 5 years, and in this time she says he has almost never missed a day of work. He has an employee who is paid to work with him.

This loan is for buying oil, brake fluid, and various car parts. She has been in the Community Bank for more than 2 years and she likes the ease of obtaining loans. Her dream is to give her children the best.
