Mujeres Soñadoras (Cuenca) Group's story

The “Mujeres Soñadoras” (Women Dreamers) communal bank is composed of six women and three men who live in various places in the city of Cuenca, a city with much natural and cultural beauty. Its residents are kind and courteous people. This city also has a wide variety of traditional dishes that captivate the taste buds of locals and foreigners alike. Our members are very hard working people who are engaged in a variety of occupations that allow them to meet household expenses and to get ahead with their families.

One of the group members is María Cruz. She lives in Cuenca and is 60 years old. She’s a widow and has five children who are all adults and married. She does not have a house of her own; she rents.

Our member has raised chickens, guinea pigs and rabbits since she was a young girl that she sells in the city. She also farms and what she grows is for her own consumption. She’s also been collecting scrap for four years.

This is the second loan she’s had in the communal bank and she will use it to buy guinea pigs and their feed. Her goal is to have more animals to raise.
