Alejandra F. I. Fausta is a member of community bank, Renacer, which means “rebirth” in Spanish. She is married and has five children. She has a stand at the market where she works daily, selling cereals and grains. With her loan of 2500 soles, Alejandra will invest in her business by purchasing oatmeal, flaxseeds, and dried goods.
Alejandra hopes to continue working so she can save up for when she is older and can no longer work.
