Prosperidad (Cuenca) Group's story

The “Credito Prosperidad” loan group is made up of nine ladies and one gentleman, each of them actively works with the group and presents his or her enthusiasm, charisma, and unity. They have been together for several years and this group has established itself as a group that is more than a family. Its main objective is to improve financial stability and for their families so that they can have the opportunities to succeed. They live in the city of Cuenca, which enjoys a natural and architectural beauty. It has been a World Heritage Site since 1999 and is the crib for great athletes and writers.

Ana is one of the members and has served as president of the “Credito Prosperidad” group for several years.

Ana is 62 years old, married, and has four adult children, who are all married and live on their own. Her husband helps her in the home because he is retired. They own their home.

Ana makes sportswear and lingerie. She began learning this when she got married, since her mother in law left her this business. She likes it very much because it allows her to stay home caring for her children, while being financially independent. She used the money from the previous loan to buy fabric and thread. She is asking for a new loan to buy spare parts for her sewing machines, fabric, and threads. Her goal is to continue growing her business.

In this group: Ana María, Blanca Margarita, Adriana Priscila, María Del Pilar, Maribel Isabel, María José, Manuel Rene De Jesús, Catalina Isabel, Mercedes Lorena, Ana Rosalia
