Eugenia is a member of the Communal Bank Amistad Unida (“Unified Friendship”).
Eugenia is married, 55 years old, and has two children ages 21 and 14, of which the latter is in state school. Eugenia studied cutting and tailoring and worked in a factory for thirteen years, until she married and became independent. She tailors clothing by measurement in her home and also leaves to see her clients in other districts. Eugenia needs a loan of 2,400 PEN; she will be venturing into the business of raising pigs, and will be purchasing 10 piglets and pig feed.
Since she has been with Finca her economic situation has improved, before she was not able to purchase fabric to offer her clients, and now she is able to purchase wholesale fabric and threads. She learned to stand out in her business and to be independent; she also learned to make friends, as she was very timid. Eugenia’s dream is to see her children become professional and to leave them a stable business.
