Rosa is a member of the communal bank "Narancay Bajo." She lives in the Rumiloma community, which is 20 minutes outside of the city of Cuenca. Here the people work in agriculture, and many leave for the city in search of better work opportunities.

Rosa has been a member of the Fundación Espoir for 5 loan cycles. She was encouraged to join the communal bank by her mother. She works selling fruit in the market, an activity that she has been carrying out for 10 years on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays. Her mother encouraged her to do this work so that it would improve the finances of her household.

Rosa is 32 years old, married, and has 3 children who are 12, 8 and 3 years old. Her oldest son entered high school this year, and her second daughter studies in a school in the city. Her husband is a bricklayer. They are living in a rented home, as they do not own a home of their own.
