Hilda Soledad's story

Hilda belongs to the communal bank Las Triunfadoras (The Winners) and lives in Cuenca. The city, known for its architectural and natural beauty, was named a World Heritage Site in December 1999. Four rivers flow through the area, which also offers great culinary variety.

Hilda, 50, is married and has six grown children, three of whom are married and living independently and three who are working and helping her financially. Her husband sells lottery tickets, and they live in a rented house. Hilda has operated a household goods and costume jewelry shop for five years. She works every day on a flexible schedule, and she also prepares and sells lunches. The two activities have helped her provide for her family.

She will use the loan to buy household goods and costume jewelry. Her goal is to keep growing her business.
