Evelyn is a member of the Sarita community bank. She is 30 years old and has two children. She has a pharmacy.
She has been working with Finca for a year and a half. With her first loan, she purchased medicines and other items for her business. Thanks to the help of Finca, she was able to open a pharmacy in another location. She likes the trainings because she learned to socialize with the other members, she learned to value herself as a woman, and to invest her money well.
She is asking for this loan to purchase medicines for her two pharmacies. Her dream is to become a wholesale medicine distributor to other pharmacies.
