A loan of $375 helped to buy a sewing machine.


Rocio's story

Rocío is a member of the Belén (Bethlehem) community bank. She is 24 years old and works in a dressmaking workshop. She has used previous loans to buy thread, needles, scissors and fabric. During this season her business is slow as the school year recently ended and a large part of her business comes from making school uniforms.

Rocío has been a member of FINCA Perú for more than a year and she has been president of her community bank. What she most likes about working with FINCA Perú are the training sessions that she attends on how to improve her business. Her dream is to expand her business and buy more sewing machines. She currently only has one.
