María Fernanda
Maria is an active member of the El Arenal communal bank, which she has belonged to for the last three years. She lives in a community called Misicata, part of the town of Baños near Cuenca. Baños is famous for its hot springs, beautiful landscapes, varied cuisine, and the culture and traditions of its people.

Maria is a young woman who is 26 years old. She is a single mother with 4 children aged 11, 9, 7, and 2. Her first three children attend primary school in the city. She does not have her own house so she rents.

She is the owner of a small sewing shop, where she has earned a living for the last two years making sportswear. She learned this trade by working and natural skill, and works Monday to Saturday without a fixed schedule.

Previous loans from the communal bank have allowed Maria's business to grow little by little. Now, she will invest this new loan in buying fabrics, thread, and parts for her sewing machines.

Maria's goals are to continue growing her business and to buy an embroidery machine.
