Fanny Ávila is a member of the Atenas del Ecuador Communal Bank. She lives in the Cisne 2 community in the Llacao parrish. It is situated 14 kilometers to the northeast of the city of Cuenca.

Llacao means gathering the corn at harvest time. The tourist attractions are the grotto at Ripichala Hill, the plains of Pachamama, the Incan cemetery, and Apangora – Molle(the Cañaris ruins). The inhabitants make handicrafts like Panama hats, baskets, and decorative ceramics.

Our member has been separated from her husband for two years. She has four children. Her first daughter is married and lives independently. Her second child works in water and gas installations. She becomes very sad upon telling us that her 16 year old daughter died when she was returning from school. Her last child goes to the local school. She enjoys having her own house. It may be small, but her heart is large and warm.

Fanny has been working as a domestic employee since the young age of ten. Her schedule is from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. At 3:30 she starts with her business of selling snacks, soft drinks, and beer. She sells a little more on the week-end. She also has a small store that she set up with her first loan.

She has been a member of the bank for many years. But, due to her daughter’s death, she left the bank. Now she has joined, and she has been in the bank for two cycles. The loans have helped with her business and her children’s education.

She will use the new loan to buy skewers, meat, sausages, potatoes, soft drinks, and beer, etc. to prepare her snacks.

Her dream is to grow a little more in her business everyday.
