Maria Carmela
María is an associate of the Llamkasum Communal Bank. She is married, 79 years of age and has 6 children. Maria has been with FINCA for more than 15 years. She is pleased with her Communal Bank because they support her when she has financial needs. She has had poor health, but is improving. She still travels to Lima monthly to receive treatments. María would not have been able to pay for the treatments if it weren't for the savings that she has with FINCA Perú.
María has requested a loan to supply her business with products and to buy products such as sugar, flour and rice, which she sells in a store that she has in her house. She is also dedicated to raising animals such as cows and chickens at her home located an hour and a half from the outskirts of Ayacucho.
Maria's dream is to continue saving in order to have money when she really needs it, as she did when she was ill.
