Mujeres Con Exito needs $3195 more for back to school, will you help?

We are over half of the way to our goal, $6305 raised and only $3195 to go. Will you help us get our kids back to school?

Our dilemma: 22 shelter children living at Casa Mara Amor + 78 shelter children living outside the shelter x $95 = $9,500. This is the amount needed to provide our children with shoes, uniforms, underwear, backpacks and supplies. (Please note: thanks to our mailing list generosity and you wonderful people on GringoPost and Facebook, we have raised $6305 of this goal since last August 13th)

How you can help: We are looking for more $95 sponsors to help our kids return to school. If you can afford more, that would be great too.

Do you need a Spanish tutor? Look no further

Hi, my name is Sandra. I am offering tutoring services to individuals of different levels of Spanish (elementary, intermediate, upper intermediate and advanced) in-person or online.

I am a passionate tutor; I teach through practice and for my lessons I use the eclectic method which is a language teaching technique that combines various approaches and methods depending on the objectives and the abilities of the students. Therefore, I always adapt my lessons to the needs, learning styles and interests of each student. You just need to tell me if you need help in grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, writing or conversation.

I love learning about new cultures and sharing the Ecuadorian culture with others, that is why I have traveled to different countries and have lived and studied in France.
I have experience teaching Spanish to foreigners living in Ecuador and abroad, so I know very well the challenges that come with learning a new language, but don’t let yourself be intimidated, I can help you.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for more information (rates for online or in-person lessons, schedules, etc.) and if you wish we can have a 30-minute free session via Skype.

PS. If you want to read some testimonials from my students, check the following link: https://gringopost.com/recommendation-for-sandra-mejia-personalized-spanish-lessons/

Don’t overpay getting your visa.

If you are filing for a temporary/permanent visa, I offer a 100% money back guarantee. That’s right. If I don’t get you your visa, you pay nothing. My name is Isabel Mosquera. I am an Ecuadorian, who studied and lived in Canada for many years. I have been a Facilitator for over 7 years and have assisted more than two hundred and fifty Expats in obtaining their visas, temporary and permanent, cedulas, translations, health insurance, housing and much more. These services are available as one fee package or individually. I own a car, so transportation is always included at no extra charge. I have always gotten my clients their Visas, even under the most difficult of circumstances, such as unreadable fingerprints for FBI reports.

Have you moved to Ecuador without the required documents? Don’t worry, I can help. I offer free consultations, either by telephone, email or in person. I am at the Immigration office on a very regular basis, so I am knowledgeable about all recent changes in the law and am happy to share my knowledge with you. I will be happy to provide you with references.

I look forward to serving you.

High rates of return + safety/security

Because many GringoPost readers may not be familiar with Cooperco, I’d like to introduce this exceptional co-operative to you. Established in Cuenca in 1965, Cooperco has, until now, been focused almost exclusively on servicing the Cuencano community. That exclusive emphasis has begun to shift. In addition to continuing to serve the Cuencano community Cooperco, in 2020, expanded its capability to now include a strong initiative serving Cuenca’s international community. Starting from a decidedly strong base, Cooperco has only grown stronger. It is the cooperative that offers CDs with not only high rates of return but unparalleled safety and security of principal. That’s a combination that is hard to beat.

Cooperco has numerous offices throughout the city of Cuenca. We have English speaking account personnel that can easily explain our numerous CD options and, more importantly, how Cooperco provides a clear investment advantage. Check us out. Learn how Cooperco can help to make the difference for you. There is a reason that countless individuals as well as many financial institutions invest with us. We may not be the biggest but we are definitely the best. Call or email me for more information.

Recommendation for Nebraska Cleaning Services

Carpet and upholstery cleaning

We recently contacted Freddie at Nebraska to have several area rugs cleaned. He arrived when scheduled, took the carpets and returned them later that day. He was prompt, courteous, spoke excellent English, did a wonderful job and his prices were very reasonable. I would highly recommend using his service.

Local, national and international tours

Having done some multi-day Ecuadorian tours with Felipe, we’re also doing some local excursions. The planned weekend hikes range from relatively easy, to really challenging. Fees are reasonable, at $10/pp and includes a bagged lunch.

The itinerary is well-articulated, along with the meeting place as well as possible opportunities outside of the event, whether local artisanal food or crafts.

Recommendation for Maggie the housekeeper, housekeeping

I saw a post by Jeff Schinsky advertising the services of his sister-in-law, Maggie, as a housekeeper. As someone who dislikes cleaning, I contacted Jeff, who then arranged a meeting with Maggie to discuss my needs, her hours, and the cost. I have been very impressed with Maggie’s cleaning. She is punctual, remains masked the entire time she’s in my home (and she has been vaccinated), and does meticulous work in cleaning (much better than what I do). Although my Spanish is limited, I have no problem letting her know what I’d like done. I do not hesitate to recommend her; you shall not be sorry. Simply contact Jeff, and he will take care of the rest.

A job well done. Thanks.

I have been coming more lately since they have started catering more to vegetarians and vegans. They have started doing vegan nights on Friday.
