Blanca Narcisa
The “Mujeres de Éxito” (Successful Women) communal bank is located in south Ecuador in the city of Cuenca. This city is 2500 meters above sea level and enjoys a cold climate; it is considered the cultural and sports capital of the country and was declared Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO thanks to its natural beauty and beautiful colonial era buildings.

Blanca T., 42, lives with her husband who is a security guard and their three children who are 20, 16 and 15 years of age; their eldest son is a university student and the other two are in school in the city. She does not own her own home; she rents.

For the last 12 years she has manufactured sportswear from Monday through Saturday. She used to work for a firm but later became independent; she now works from home and delivers her products to customers at Cuenca’s Free Market.

She will use the requested funds to buy fabric, thread, lace, zippers, buttons and other materials for her clothes.

She tells us that she has been collaborating with her communal bank for five years since she was invited to join by some acquaintances.

Her goal is to see her children become excellent professionals and to own a house of her own someday.
