Merci's story

Mrs. Merci E. R. is 31 years old and belongs to the Buen Pastor (Good Pastor) Communal Bank. She lives in the village of Lluin, district of Mache, province of Otuzco, in the region of La Libertad. She completed middle school but did not continue studying owing to the fact that she married. Merci is dedicated to the purchase and sale of cereal grains which she gets from the farms at the time of harvest.

Her first loan was for 300 PEN which she paid in four payments, and was used to purchase cereal grains. With this loan of 1000 PEN which will be paid in six payments she will purchase cereal grains and other seasonal products. Merci dreams of seeing her children become professionals so that they have a better quality of life.
