Blanca Gladys's story

Blanca has been a member of the communal bank Corazón de María for three years. She lives in the Yanaturo Community in the city of Cuenca, a city which is very colorful because of its scenery and traditional regional dress. The climate is cold and the people are warm-hearted, kind and gentle.

Blanca is 45 years old, married and has three adult children who all live independently. Her husband is a private employee and they own the house they live in.

For four years she has been selling clothing at a stall she has in the city market. At home she runs a laundry service and has been in business for two years.

She plans to use the loan to buy clothing to increase her stock.

Her goal is to have a large shop in the city center to sell her merchandise.
