A loan of $550 helped to buy seafood.


Nancy Viviana's story

Nancy belongs to the "12 de Abril" communal bank. She lives in Cuenca, a city that's been a Cultural Heritage of Humanity since December, 1999. It's a city with colonial and modern architecture. It's residents are kind, pleasant and still preserve their culture and traditions.

Nancy's 23-years-old and the single mother of two children who are 5 and 3 years old. Her oldest daughter goes to the local elementary school. Nancy's house is hers. She works daily selling seafood in a city market, an activity she's been in for three years and that thanks to her charisma has led to having a select clientele. This work gives her time to care for her children who are still little.

She used the money from her previous loan to buy a large selection of seafood for her business and repaid said loan on time and with no difficulties. She will also use her new loan to buy seafood. She likes her communal bank because it's a quick way to get business capital.
