Adriana Jessenia's story

The Communal Bank Los Corrales meets every two weeks in a town called Los Corrales, a few minutes away from Montecristi. Most people there work in activities such as craftsmanship and trade in general. This is where Adriana lives. She is a 26-year old married woman and has three children, aged 11, 8 and 4. The two older kids attend school and her husband is a professional driver.

With an aim to have her own financial resources and to help her husband with the household expenses and tuition for the kids, Adriana has her own business selling all kind of clothing items. She sells door to door Monday through Friday, and also cooks and sells food at her house on Saturdays and Sundays. She has a dining room where she offers breakfasts and delicious lunches. She has been in business for six years and things are going well.

She will use the requested loan to buy pants, shirts, children's clothes and food to prepare the meals. She has been a member of the communal bank since its inception and she likes it because thanks to one of the loans received she could start her business.

Her dream is to provide her children with the best.
