Gladys and her family are healthy. Several years ago, she joined the communal bank Cochapamba, and since then her friendship with the other members has grown. She lives in Valle parish in Cuenca, where the friendly, courteous residents farm and raise livestock and still maintain their traditions and culture. Doña Gladys is 26, married, and has a seven-year-old son from her marriage who attends a small school in the city. Her husband is a bricklayer, and they own the house they live in. Gladys's financial situation is good because she cleans houses for others. In addition to doing her own household chores, she raises pigs and chickens to sell in the city when she needs extra income. She will use the loan is to buy pigs, chickens, and animal feed.
