Mujeres Progresistas (Cuenca) Group's story

The “Mujeres Progresistas” (Progressive Women) communal bank has seven members who live in different parts of the city of Cuenca, a city noted for being a Cultural Heritage of Humanity since December, 1999. The beauty of its architecture and nature make this city charming; it’s rich in culture and traditions. Its residents are kind, pleasant and warmhearted like our members who work in various activities that allow them to cover their expenses and help with household costs.

One of the members of this group is Nelly. She’s 32 and a single mother of two children who are 10 and 8 years old and attending a local little elementary school in the city.

Nelly does her household chores but also works in agriculture. She grows greens that she then sells in a market in the city; she’s been doing this since she was very young.

This is her first loan with the communal bank and she will use it to buy seeds and manure for her crops. He gareteaste dram es tú través te Word.
