Jessica Pamela's story

Jessica is a member of the Futuro de Vida (Future of Life) communal bank. She lives in the city of Cuenca, a city of great cultural, natural, and architectural riches. It is bathed by the four rivers which give it the name Santa Ana of the Four Rivers. Its people maintain their culture and traditions.

Jessica is 19 years old. She lives in a common-law marriage, and her husband works in a workshop where they make ceilings. She does not have her own house, so she rents.

She has worked for 3 months renting out a washing machine, and at night she is studying at a school in the city.

This is her second loan with the communal bank. She will use her loan to start a fast food business. She is going to buy meat, sausages, bread, potatoes, and other foods.

Her goal is to be a good professional.
