Dolores
Dolores has been part of the communal bank "Las Cuencanitas" (The Ladies of Cuenca) for 12 years. 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.

Dolores is 48 years old. She is separated, but from her marriage she has three children, aged 20, 19 and 17. Her oldest son works and helps her economically. Her second is married and lives independently, and her youngest attends a high school in the city. She does not own her own home, but rather rents.

Dolores is a native of the province of Cotopaxi, but she came to live in Cuenca 25 years ago, and it is here that she began her family business, which is the traveling sales of foods such as puffed corn kernels, potatoes with pork strips, or stew (all typical foods of the region).

Her new credit will be used to invest in the foodstuffs she needs to carry on with her business. Her dream is to see all her children become professionals.
