Tatiana Del Cisne's story

This is Tatiana's fifth loan from the Sentimientos communal bank. She likes this group because of the companionship, bonds and charisma of all the members of this wonderful group. She lives in the centre of the city of Cuenca. Since December 1999 this city has been a Cultural Heritage Site. It has as much natural beauty as colonial beauty, and its people still keep the flame of their culture and cuisine alive.

Tatiana is 24 years old, single, and is very excited because she is pregnant. She lives with her sister in a rented house.

She is a native of the Loja province. She came to Cuenca to study, and has lived here for some time. She is studying the last year of dentistry at a university in the city. To have her own resources she works selling clothes and cosmetics from a catalogue.

She will invest her new loan in the purchase of clothing and cosmetics, and will also will pay the tuition fees for her studies.

Her goal is to graduate and do a postgraduate qualification.
