María Eugenia's story
Señora Maria is a member of the communal bank Feria Libre. She lives in a beautiful sector of the city of Cuenca, a city that was named a UNESCO World Heritage site in December 1999. It is bathed by four rivers and has a variety of gastronomy. Its people are kind, gentle, and hard-working, and they maintain their traditions and culture. Doña Maria is 27 years old. She is married and has three children, ages 12, 2, and a baby of 7 months. Her oldest daughter attends a city school. Her husband is a driver by profession, and he works driving a bus. They do not have their own house, so they live in the house of her mother, with whom they share the household expenses. Señora Rosa is a professional seamstress, a trade that she learned by studying. She has been working in her profession for 7 years. She works in her house and works every day of the week without a fixed schedule. She has been in her communal bank for 5 years, and she will invest her new loan in the purchase of fabrics, threads, buttons, fasteners, and other items for sewing. Her goal is to have her own house.
