Ayme
Ayme is a member of the Señor de Huanca communal bank. She is 30 years old and lives with her husband and their son.

Ayme will use the loan for her business selling cakes from her shop, "Pasteleria Yomi." (Yomi Bakery). The name Yomi is a combination of the names of her son and of her daughter, who passed away soon after she was born. Ayme suffered greatly because of her daughter's death and is afraid to try to have another baby because the doctors have told her that she would probably lose the child. Meanwhile she keeps busy with her store and her son.

She will use her loan specifically to buy flour and sugar. When she was not a member of FINCA Perú, Ayme bought small amounts of ingredients, and now she buys large sacks of flour and sugar so she makes many more cakes than before. Ayme also sells soft drinks at a small stand in the store.

She has been a member of FINCA Perú for a year and a half, and what she likes best are the talks and her facilitator, who always cheers her up when she feels sad. The members vent their feelings with each other. The talks and training have taught her how to treat her husband and son and how to manage money. Ayme says that she has to invest in whatever has the best prospects and not worry about investing in things that have no potential. Her dream is to have a larger cake shop so she can vary her cakes more. She also dreams of her son studying and becoming a professional.

Ayme es socia del Banco Comunal Señor de Huanca, tiene 30 años y vive con su conviviente y su hijo. Ayme utilizara su préstamo para su negocio que es la venta de tortas desde su tienda,"Pasteleria Yomi." El nombre Yomi es una combinacion del nombre de su hijo y de su hija que falleció apenas nació. Ayme sufrió mucho con el fallecimiento de su hija y tiene miedo de intentar de tener otro bebe porque los doctores le han dicho que es probable que lo pierda. Mientras tanto ella se mantiene ocupada con su tienda y su hijo. Específicamente ella utilizará su préstamo para comprar harina y azúcar. Cuando no era socia de FINCA Perú Ayme compraba de a pocos ingredientes y ahora compra sacos grandes de harina y azúcar y por lo tanto hace muchas mas tortas que antes. Ayme también vende gaseosas en un puesto pequeño en la tienda. Ya lleva un año y medio con FINCA Perú y lo que lo gusta mas son las charlas y su promotora que siempre la alegra cuando tiene pena. Se desahogan entre las socias. Las charlas y las capacitaciones le han enseñado como tratar a su pareja y su hijo y como manejar el dinero. Ayme dice que hay que invertir en lo que tiene mas salida y no preocuparse de invertir en lo que no tiene potencial. Su meta es tener una tienda mas grande de tortas para variarlo mas. También sueña que su hijo estudie y se haga profesional.
