Mercedes's story

Mercedes is a member of the “Lealtad” (Loyalty) communal bank. She’s 26 years old, single and the mother of one daughter. She’s been a member for a year and she’s a merchant who buys and sells pork and beef. She was invited to join Finca Perú by one of the members. Thanks to Finca she was able to save up and buy a freezer and an electronic scale. She likes the training sessions because they talk about saving and how to invest in her business; they also helped her to improve her personal relationships with her family. She also likes Finca because it carries out health campaigns which are a good thing. She will take out a loan to invest in her business buying pork.
