Ruth Cecilia's story

Ruth is taking out her first loan with the “Futuro para un Bienestar” (A Future for Well-Being). She lives in the city of Cuenca, a city that safeguards its history and keeps its colonial architecture intact. The city’s cuisine is varied and delights the palates of its visitors. Its people are kind, courteous and keep their culture and traditions alive. Ruth is 49-years-old, married and has no children. Her husband works in commerce. The house she lives in is hers. For the last 20 years Ruth has been working selling furniture and clothes for which she has a locale. She works Monday through Saturday with no fixed schedule. Her loan is to buy clothes to better stock her store. Her dream is to travel to the United States.
