Alexandra Isabel
Alexandra is getting her second loan along side her friends and partners in the communal bank "Las Cuencanitas" (The Ladies of Cuenca). She lives in the city of Cuenca, which has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since December 1999. It has a cold climate and a varied gastronomy that captivates the palate of both natives and locals alike. Its people are friendly, kind, and most importantly, they preserve the culture and traditions of their villages.

Alexandra is 29 years old and married, and she and her husband have a ten year old son who is studying in a small school in the city. Her husband is a highly skilled artisan. They do not have their own home, but rather rent.

Alexandra, like her husband, also works in artisanry. They make figurines, weavings, beaded bracelets, and other goods that they sell while traveling through the city.

She will invest this new loan in the purchase of ceramics, paints, thread, yard, and other raw goods to help keep growing her business. Her goal is to learn to speak English and play musical instruments.
