María is a member of the Primavera Community Bank, has a degree in Nursing, and her husband is a doctor. She has four children and a nephew to take care of, she has been with FINCA for eighteen years, and has a pharmacy and a store. She is extremely grateful for FINCA since the organization has helped her through some of the most difficult times. When her sister passed away several years ago, Morenita (Lucinda, the founder of FINCA Peru) helped her to make a bench with her sister’s name, María Antonieta. When her sister passed away, María took charge of her nephew, and she still cares for him. She will invest in various products for her store. Her dream is to have another store, and so will work more and save.
