Gloria Beatriz's story

Gloria is a member of the Las Aurelianas communal bank. She lives in the outskirts of the city of Cuenca, which was recognized as a World Heritage Site in 1999. The mixture of colonial and modern architecture makes the city have a singular beauty. The people of Cuenca are extremely friendly and cordial. They maintain the culture and traditions of their villages.

Gloria, age 38, is married and has three children; ages 15, 7, and 6. Her first daughter goes to high school, and the other two attend an elementary school in the city. Her husband works as a private employee. They do not have their own house; they rent where they live.

Gloria devotes herself to the household chores. As she has a degree in early childhood education, she also lends her services by conducting workshops when her support is requested.

This is her second loan with her communal bank. She will use the loan to buy books, balls, mats, magazines, videos, puzzles, and other teaching materials for her workshops.

Her goal is to have her own house.
