Monica Fabiola's story

Monico B. is a member of the Genesis village bank and lives in the suburb of Calderon in the city of Cuenca. The city is known for being the cradle of authors and for being surrounded by 4 rivers; it is a special city thanks to its churches, its historical center and its people.

Monica is 37 years old, married and has a 16 year old daughter that is in the city high school. Monica's husband is a policeman in the US; he emigrated but has not forgotten about his wife and child and visits whenever he can. They don't have their own home so they continue to rent.

She has run a catering business for special events for the past 4 years; 4 months ago, she started offering lunches from Monday to Friday. She learned how to prepare all the dishes on her own in order to support the family.

She has been a member of the bank for 2 cycles and was invited by a fellow bank member. She will use the money to make a payment on her car she uses for the business. Her goal is to grow her business little by little till it is very large.
