Bellavista (Cuenca) Group's story

The “Bellavista” communal bank has one male and six female members who are pleasant, kind, very hardworking people who work at various activities to cover household expenses and get ahead with their children. They live around Cumbe Parish in Cuenca, a place with a cold climate surrounded by vegetation. Its residents raise animals, farm and are merchants. Many of them go to work every day in the city of Cuenca in various jobs. Its residents maintain the culture and traditions of its peoples.

One of the members of this group is Rosa. She’s 35 years old, divorced and has a 13 year old daughter attending a secondary school in the city. The house she lives in is her property.

Rosa does her household chores and takes care of her daughter. She has been working selling milk for the last three years from Sunday to Sunday. She also raises guinea pigs, chickens, cattle and pigs at home. She also farms but only for home consumption.

She’s in the second loan with the communal bank and she will use it to buy a calf to continue raising animals. Her goal is to finish her house since it still needs some finishing touches.

The two little girls in the photo are the daughters of two of the members.

In this group: Esther Lorena, Lizeth Andreina, Rosa Edelina, María Dolores, Hortencia María, Luis Alfredo, Erika Gabriela
