Rosa, 41, is a member of the “Tarpuy” communal bank. She’s a vendor. She is asking for the loan to buy groceries like: rice, sugar, noodles, eggs and flour, among others.

Rosa goes to the farmers marked in San Pedro de Cachi to sell groceries in general, fruit and vegetables. She buys cereals there which she then sells at the Sunday Las Americas Farmers Market. She buys cheese and “chapla” (artisanal bread baked with eucalyptus) bread that she takes to Lima every two weeks to sell; she does very well.

She enjoys the communal bank meetings in FINCA Perú because of the ease of the loans and because they teach her how to save. She was able to use her savings to buy a mototaxi and she’s saving to buy another one for her son.
