Gabriela's story

Gabriela, 31, is a member of Capuli Communal Bank. She lives with her partner and is the mother of three children (two boys and a girl). She has been a member of FINCA Peru for eight years and works selling a variety of ornaments and decorations, especially Christmas ornaments and decorations for Holy Week. She also sells clothing.

She says that in all this time she has learned to save and to share and be supportive, which is what she appreciates most about FINCA Peru. Her dream for the future is to build her own house.

She is going to invest the loan she is requesting in buying merchandise for her business, such as ornaments, decorations, and clothing.
