Thanks to FINCA Peru, Francisco was able to grow his guinea pig business. He also learned how to save and better manage his money. He enjoys the Communal Bank meetings because of the seminars that have helped to educate his children. Francisco will invest his new loan in the purchase of more female guinea pigs.
