Narcisa De Jesús's story

Narcisa is a member of the communal bank Corazon de Maria. She lives near the Parish of Del Valle (Cuenca). This area is surrounded by mountains that give us beautiful scenery. The people are dedicated to commerce, livestock farming, and agriculture. Many set out to work in the city in a variety of businesses. They maintain their culture and the traditions of their towns.

Narcisa is 31 years old and she is married. She has conceived 2 children from her marriage, aged 11 and 9. They are both attending primary school in the city. Her husband works as a carpenter in his own shop. They don't have a house of their own so they live in her parents' house. They share the household expenses.

Narcisa works by managing a bookstore. She has had her business for 2 years and she works from Monday to Friday on a part time basis. At home she takes care of the children and she also raises and sells guinea pigs.

She has been with her communal bank for 2 years and she will invest her new loan in the purchase of guinea pigs.

Her goal is to have a house of her own.
