Rosa María
Rosa is a member of the Futuro para un Bienestar Communal Bank. She lives in the neighborhood of Racar in Cuenca. This area has beautiful landscapes and its people make traditional crafts, such as tile and bricks. Many of them live in the city doing different kinds of work, but they maintain the culture and tradition of their parents.

Rosa is 37 years old, married, and has six children who are 20, 18, 16, 14, 12, and 10 years old. Three of her children work and help with the household expenses. One of her daughters stays at home and helps with chores. Her second-to-youngest son is in school and her youngest daughter goes to a small school in the city. Her husband lives out of the country, having moved so that he could make more money for his family with his work. They own their home.

A little while ago, Rosa started working in a bakery and she works all day from Sunday to Thursday.

She is rejoining the communal bank, as she used to be a member. She is going to use the loan money to make a payment on her sewing machine and to buy fabric, as she's going to set up a small sewing workshop in her home.

Her goal is to grow and improve the business she's starting.
