Paulina is a member of the communal bank "Renacer." She is 36 years old, and is the mother of 2 children. She has been a member of FINCA Peru for more than 4 years. She lives with a partner and has a business buying and selling cattle. Thanks to FINCA, she bought some land, which was a dream of hers, and she feels proud about this. The loans that she has been given have helped her to continue to make progress and educate her children. She says that before, she used to buy and sell only in Huamanga, but now she travels to bring her livestock outside of Huamanga. She likes FINCA Peru, because they taught her to how to save her money and invest. The loan that she is requesting will be invested in her business; she will buy cattle to fatten and later sell.
