Digna Isabel's story

Digna is a kind and gentle member of the Cruzloma lending group. She is on her second loan. She lives in the Paute canton, which is located on the route that links the mountains and the eastern region of Ecuador. It has a temperate climate and the people are very kind. Digna is 22 years old, is married and has two children, ages 4 and 3, from this marriage. Her husband works operating heavy machinery. They do not own their own home, therefore they currently live in her in-laws home. Digna works selling fast food on the weekends. The rest of the week, she takes care of her family, and raises hens and guinea pigs. The money from this loan will be used to purchase hens, guinea pigs and a cart to expand her business. Her goal is to have a larger business and get ahead with her family.
