Zoila Rosa's story

Zoila is a member of the communal bank "Las Flores." She lives in the city of Cuenca, a city that has an architectural, cultural and natural beauty that captivates both locals and foreigners. The city has great variety in its cuisine, and friendly and cordial people.

Zoila is a 50 year-old widow. From her marriage she has 5 children, 4 of whom are married and independent. Her youngest daughter, 10, is studying in a small school in the city. She owns the house that she lives in.

Zoila has a business selling fruit at retail and wholesale. She has her own stall, and she has been in this business for 25 years. She works every day, starting her working day at 3 in the morning and working until 7 at night.

This is the first loan that she has taken with her communal bank. She joined the bank at the invitation of her sister-in-law. She will invest this loan in the purchase of fruits so that she can continue with her business.

Her goal is to buy herself a vehicle.
