Tres De Noviembre (Cuenca) Group's story

Tres de Noviembre Group is made up of seven members who live around the parish of Cumbe in Cuenca, a place with a cold climate that has beautiful natural landscapes to enjoy because of the rugged geography. The parish center is colonial and modern. The people there are friendly and very hardworking. They work in agriculture, raising animals, and commerce, and many have migrated in search of a better future for their families.

One of the members of this group is Ana, 24, who is single and lives with her parents. Her father's a private employee and her mother works in agriculture. The house she lives in is their own.

Ana earns a living raising livestock, guinea pigs, and chickens, which she sells in her own community. She sells the milk from her cows to milk trucks. She's going to invest her new loan in buying livestock to raise.

Her goal is to have more animals as well as a workshop for handmade embroidery.

In this group: María Rosa Marina, Ana Lucia, Ana Lourdes, Rosario, María De Los Dolores*, María Auxiliadora, María Etelvina
