A loan of $550 helped to buy chickens and pigs.

Rosa Maclovia's story

Rosa is a member of the “Sector 3 Marías” communal bank and lives in a community that belongs to Turi Parish in Cuenca. This parish is known as the City’s Overlook because a great part of the city can be observed from there. Its residents are merchants, raise animals and farm; they are noted for being nice and kind.

Rosa as well as her entire family are in very good health . She raises chickens, an activity she started with the first loan cycle in the communal bank. Two months ago she started working cleaning houses. She does these jobs to contribute to household economy and raise her children.

She used her previous loan to buy chickens and chicken feed. She was late with one payment because her mother got sick but she’s caught up on her payments now.

She likes the communal bank because of the companionship that exists among the members and because of the ease in getting loans. She will use her new loan to buy chickens and pigs.
