Nelva, 30, is a member of the “Milenio” (Millennium) communal bank. She has a spouse and two daughters. She’s been a member of Finca Perú for 7 years and is a street merchant selling cleaning supplies, scissors, notions, thread and needles; a little bit of everything. It has served her well, especially when her fellow members offered her the role of communal bank governing board president which helped her overcome her weaknesses.

In all this time as member of Finca Perú she’s learned much about responsibility, punctuality and mutual support and she’s strengthened her values very much.

Her dream for the future is to have a store of her own. She will use the loan she’s requesting to buy merchandise for her business like costume jewelry items and cleaning supplies.
