Mariana Isabel
Marianita lives in the Eucaliptos neighborhood, a very nice section of Cuenca. She does not own her own home but rents one on Tungurahua and Corregidor Streets. She has belonged to the "La Unión" community bank for many years and says that the members are responsible and serious, but most important of all, punctual.
She is 47 years old, married and has three children who are 25, 22 and 20. Most of the children live with her, only the oldest lives apart, although he spends most of his time with Marianita along with her grandchildren. Her home is peaceful and harmonious and she has a good relationship with her husband.
She has belonged to the "La Unión" community bank for a long time and this is her sixth loan. This loan will be for 1,100 dollars, which will be used for supplies and utensils for her business, which is a restaurant in the April 12th market in the city of Cuenca. She prepares meals such as beef stew, chicken, guatita (a tripe dish with potatoes and peanut sauce), juices, M. en leche (a drink similar in taste to rice pudding, but made with corn) and other dishes that she can sell to people who come to the market. The advantage of this business is that it is located at the entrance to the market and people come straight to her place to eat or have a M., which happens to be the best in the market.
