Liceth Del Florón (Portoviejo) Group's story

In the area known as “El Florón” (the rosette) in the city of Portoviejo there is a reunion every 15 days of the 9 female members and 2 male members of the “Liceth del Florón” Community Bank. They work in various activities such as trade in general, service delivery and more. Some time ago they decided to unite and form this group of community bank which has helped them a lot in their business and family life.

A member of this group is Mr. Limbert who is 46-years-old, is married, and has three children who are 24, 20 and 15 years old. The youngest is student in college. His wife is a homemaker and helps him with his business.

Limber is a native of Cantón Santa Ana, but more than 20 years ago he moved to this city and started his family life here. Since then he had the idea of starting his own business and this is how it has grown. He had one small grocery store and has been improving it over time. Currently, he also sells other items of food such as meat, fruits, vegetables, fish, sparkling water and gas for domestic use, which has a separate location.

This business has given him the ability to get his family ahead and keep improving their quality of life day by day and now more so with the help of loans. This credit is to buy groceries to stock for his store. He has been a member from the start of the community bank and likes it for the help they give to the whole group. His dreams are to get ahead and enjoy good health.

In this group: Evelina Alejandra, Estela Beatriz, Karina Marisol, Martha Lisseth, Diana Patricia, Eladia Filiderfa, Jenny Violeta, Virginia Monserrate, Yandry Javier*, Limbert Humberto, Ana Vanessa
