Maria Delfina
The communal bank "La Paz" was formed in the city of Cuenca, which is a city that is very rich in its culture and traditions, such as the Day of the Innocent Saints, and El Pase del Nino Viajero (parade honoring the traveling Infant Jesus), among others. These are traditional celebrations that attract both national and international tourists. The members of the communal bank are a group of people that are united in looking to improve their social and economic situation, working to build a great friendship, respect and mutual assistance so that they can move their families ahead.

Señora María D. is a member of the communal bank "La Paz." She lives in the Quinta Chica parish in the city of Cuenca. She is 47 years old and has been separated from her husband for a number of years. She has 5 children, age 28, 25, 21,16 and 4 years. Her oldest children already work and they help her with the household expenses; they live in a rented home, as they do not own their own home. Maria has worked in the market "9 de Octubre" in the city of Cuenca for 28 years. She sells all kinds of cooked beans; when she works she walks all around the market offering her products.

This is her third year working with the loans of the communal bank, and she is convinced that they have helped her to improve her business. With this new loan that the FUNDACION ESPOIR is making, she is going to buy a variety of dried beans such as peas, kidney beans, broad beans and peanuts, etc., to better supply her business and in this way attract more customers.

Her main dream is to be able to own her own home for the tranquility of the whole family.
