Ana Gabriela
Ana is a member of the Gualaceñitas community bank. She lives in Gualaceo canton, in a prosperous village, situated in one of the most beautiful valleys in the province and the country. The area has wonderful scenery and a pleasant climate. For this reason, it is a popular tourist destination. The locals grow vegetables, corn, sugarcane, fruit etc. They also create precious handicrafts. The traditional village center, although small, still preserves some colonial-style houses with typical doorways, second floors supported on pillars, and wide balconies, especially those which are found on Cuenca Street, opposite the Central Park.

Ana is 19 years old. She has a common-law husband and a 16-month-old son. Her husband has migrated in search of a better job so that he can provide his family with a better future. Ana does not own her own home but instead rents a house together with her mom. They share the household expenses.

Ana works from home making footwear. She has been in this business for five years. She works from Monday to Saturday, from 8.00am to 6.00pm. She works to order. She is also studying her fifth year of her 'bachillerato' (High School Diploma). This is her second loan through her community bank. She will invest it in buying thread and adhesive so that she can carry out her work.

Ana's goal is to continue with her studies and to go on to University.
