Heidi is a member of the “Sarita” communal bank; she’s 28 years old, single and has taxis that she puts to work. She’s been in Finca for two years. She used her initial loans to buy spare parts for her car and now is doing well in her business. In Finca she learned how to save and she likes the training because she learned how to socialize with her fellow members, to invest her money well and to manage her business. The loan she’s asking for she’ll add to her savings to buy another taxi. Her dream is to open a clothing store.
