Entrada A Chunazana (Nabón) Group's story

The Entrada a Chunazana loan group is made up of six women who live in the area of Nabón Canton. The area enjoys a cold climate, extensive fields formed from the rugged geography, and a mix of colonial and modern architecture. The residents are friendly, kind, and above all hardworking, and they strive every day in their jobs to improve the financial stability of their households. They proudly preserve their customs and traditions.

One of the members of this group is María Rosa. She's getting her first loan along with her friends and colleagues who make up the Entrada a Chunazana group. She likes this type of loan because of the solidarity and closeness of all the members.

María Rosa, 53, is married and has five children who are married and live on their own. Her husband works as a day laborer. The house she lives in is her own.

María Rosa makes a living in agriculture and raising animals, in particular guinea pigs, laying hens, and chickens. She sells her animals in the city or in her community. This job gives her the opportunity to improve her household financial stability.

She's going to invest the money from the loan in chickens and guinea pigs. Her goal is to expand her business with better-quality animals.

In this group: Digna Yolanda, Martha Isabel, Blanca Licinda, Lidia Jaqueline, María Baleriana, María Rosa
