Clara Lía
Clara T., 51, is a member of the La Playa (The Beach) communal bank. She lives in the La Playa neighborhood of El Valle parish, which is 45 minutes outside of Cuenca. Its residents are primarily farmers that grow corn, bean, potatoes and vegetables; not in large quantities because most of the population goes to the city to work at various jobs but enough to supply the local market and for personal use of the farmers. In addition, they raise cows, sheep, chickens, geese, guinea-pigs, etc.

Clara had just one son, who is almost 26 years old. He’s married and shares his mother’s house and household expenses. In exchange, she helps him to care for his two small children while he and his wife work.

Clara raises animals; she has two dairy cows and she delivers their milk to the area milk collecting truck. The guinea-pigs and chickens she sells live to her neighbors or to whomever asks for them; she also keeps some for personal consumption. She combines these tasks with household chores.

Clara has been a member of the La Playa communal bank for five years. Loans received have made it possible for her to buy animals and to gradually build her house.

The funds from this new loan will be used to buy a cow and a pig, her goal being to make daily improvements to her home and to have a better quality of life.
