Ana is a member of the communal bank Sarita. She is 29 years old, is in a defacto relationship and has a son. She has been a member of FINCA Peru for 5 years. She earns her living selling vegetables both wholesale and retail in the Nery Garcia Market in Ayacucho.
She likes going to the meetings of her communal bank since the training she has received has taught her to be responsible and not to be a pessimist. She has felt proud and much more enterprising since the institution taught her to save, and in this way she can change her financial situation and that of her family.
Her goal is to buy a plot of land and to build her own house. She is asking for a loan to buy vegetables wholesale so that she can then sell them in the market.
