Agustina's story

Agustina is a member of the Sol de Alegría communal bank. She is married, 48 years old and has three children, 16, 11 and 9, who are in the public schools.
Agustina had a hardware business and distributed hardware supplies to various shops, but she hurt her back from carrying so much and gave out credit at 15 days and 1 month, so she had to change her line of business. She started up a restaurant, which is going better for her, and there is money coming in every day.
Agustina needs a loan for 2,400 soles to buy tables, chairs and kitchenware for her restaurant. Since she has been with Finca she now invests more, her finances have improved, and she has learned to save and to be responsible with her loans. Agustin´s dream is to start up a restaurant.
