Magali started an education but didn’t get to apply it because she got married and left on a trip to Argentina, but things didn’t work out and she had to return. She constantly suffered beatings by her husband to the point where she had to go to the hospital.
This is when she decided to start selling clothes. She bought three shirts for little girls and two pairs of pants. She succeeded in selling them and then bought more. Since then, Magali has sold clothes for a living. Twelve years have passed, and she now has a partner that respects and supports her.
Since joining FINCA, Magali has learned to value herself as a woman and to work toward her dreams. Magali needs a loan of 1400 PEN to buy discounted clothes and footwear. Her dream is to see her daughters grow up and become professionals.
