Nuevo Amanecer (Cuenca) Group's story

The communal bank Nuevo Amanecer is formed by 8 women who are kind, charismatic, brave and very hardworking; who struggle day by day to improve the lives of their families and improve their family finances. They live in the community of Zhidmad in Cuenca. This place is surrounded by nature and vegetation. Its people work raising animals, in agriculture, and many work in the city in different activities and return to their homes in the evening. One of the members of this group is Rosa. She is 34 years old, married, and fruit of her marriage are 4 children, who are 14, 11, 7 and 4 years old. Her oldest daughter studies in high school and her other three other children study in the little school of the area. Her husband works as a cook. She owns the house where she lives. Rosa does the household chores and takes care of the children, but in order to help her husband financially she works as a domestic employee and also raises pigs. She will invest this loan in her children's studies. She will buy the books they need. Her goal is to be able to have an own business such as a store in her house.
