Leticia Narcisa
Cuenca is located in the south of the country. Due to its medieval architecture, it is very beautiful, besides being Ecuador’s third most important city. Its climate is cold, but it makes up for this with the warmth of its friendly and cultured people.


Señora Leticia Narcisa R. Dávila is a member of the Mujeres Triunfadoras (Victorious Women) Communal Bank, located in the center of the city of Cuenca. She is 46 years old and married and maintains a good matrimonial relationship. She has three children, ages 26, 23, and 16. Her oldest children are already married, and her youngest daughter is studying to be a beautician at an academy in the city. Her husband is a retail merchant. They don’t yet have their own home, which is why they are renters.


Leticia is an itinerant merchant and sells all sorts of educational materials for children, such as coloring books, jigsaw puzzles, legos, etc. She has been in this business for 20 years and tells us that the profits are very low. She barely succeeds in covering the daily expenses and manages to pay a few small debts and to save for the rent for her house. Her work schedule is from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m.


Leticia gets along with all the members of her communal bank, creating a good atmosphere of friendship. This is her second cycle in FUNDACIÓN ESPOIR. She feels very grateful for the help she receives in order to improve her business.


She is going to invest the loan the foundation gives her in new classes of goods such as shoes, backpacks, and school supplies in order to enlarge her business with a varied stock of educational materials for children. Her greatest dream is to succeed in having her own house.
