Humbertina De Jesús's story

Humbertina has been a member of the communal bank "La Paz" for several years. During this time she and the other members have developed a great friendship. She lives in the city of Cuenca which receives many tourists to its historic center, designated in December 1999 as World Heritage site. Its four rivers, culture, tradition and gastronomy captivate both locals and visitors.

Humbertina, 64, is divorced and has two adult children who are married. She lives in her own home.

She raises chickens for a living and is able to provide her household and all the family with a stable income. She has been involved in this activity since she was very young; and caring for animals is her passion.

Her previous loan was used to buy chickens and animal feed which made her a good profit. She plans to use the new loan to buy animal feed and construction materials to build a larger chicken coop.
