Adriana Narcisa's story

Sra. Adriana is receiving her fourth loan from the Communal Bank “Emprendedores del Futuro” (Entrepreneurs of the Future). She lives in the city of Cuenca, which is known for its cold climate and its warm-hearted people who have maintained the culture and traditions of their ancestors.

Sra. Adriana is 27 years old, married, and has three children (11, 10, and 6). All of her children are studying at a school in the city. Her husband is a merchant. They do not own a house, so they live in a rental property.

Just like her husband, Adriana is a merchant who sells seasonal products such as firework sets for New Year’s Eve or Carnival, cherry bombs, confetti, and other items. She sells her products by traveling throughout the city Monday through Saturday, but without a set schedule. Her new loan will be invested in the purchase of firework sets for her business.

Her goal is to have her own shop.
