Camino A La Esperanza (Cuenca) Group's story

The loan group Camino a la Esperanza (Road to Hope) is formed by 7 members who live on the outskirts of Santa Ana Parish in Cuenca. This parish enjoys cold weather, surrounded by a lot of vegetation and green fields. Its architecture is a mixture of modern and old. The people, like the members, have big hearts and work hard to improve their household earnings and to come out ahead.

One of the members of this group is Maria. Maria is 60 years old, married and has 7 adult children; 4 are married and live with their families, 3 are single and work and help her financially. Her husband works in construction. She owns the house where she lives.

Maria works from home, work she inherited from her parents; raising animals and agriculture. The animals she raises are sheep, pigs and guinea pigs. The farming is for personal consumption but if there is excess they sell it.
