She lives in the city of Cuenca, a city surrounded by grand landscapes, which has been a World Heritage Site since December 1999. Its people are happy and very hard-working, yet they still maintain their culture and the traditions of their communities.

María is 45 and is in a common-law marriage. She has three children with her husband, ages 20, 18, and 13. Her eldest son suffers from a disability, so he lives at home, while her two younger daughters are studying at a school in the city. Her husband works as a driver. They don't have their own house, so they rent.

María is a native of the province of Esmeraldas, and she came to this city 13 years ago. She makes her living as a street vendor of Tupperware (plastic items) and cosmetics from Leodine and Yanbal. She has had this business for eight years and she works from Monday to Saturday without a fixed schedule.

She will invest the money from her loan in the purchase of Tupperware and cosmetics in order to continue growing her business.
