María Angeles's story

María is a member of the Las Morlaquitas communal bank. She lives in the city of Cuenca. Since 1999, this city has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is a place of great beauty and natural and cultural riches. Its people are kind and cordial, and they maintain the culture and traditions of their people.

María is 53 years old and separated. Her marriage has produced 6 children. Three are married and live independently. Three work, study, and help her economically. She does not have her own house, since she rents.

For 33 years, María has sold all kinds of fruit door-to-door. She works every day without a fixed schedule. In her house, she raises chickens.

She has been a member of the communal bank for one year, and she will use her loan to purchase fruit and chickens.

Her goal is to build her own house.
