A loan of $350 helped purchase of tickets for resale.


Nelly's story

Nelly is a member of Bancomunal Las Gitanas. She is 56, lives with her husband, and has one grown son who is married. She worked as a secretary in one firm for 20 years, and when the business failed, she had a video game business that lasted for a time but closed when she moved to another house. Nelly sells meals in the morning, and in the afternoon she works in a friend's agency as an independent seller of air and land tickets. Nelly needs a loan of $350 to buy the tickets so she can sell them. Since she has been with Finca, she has learned to be precise in every way and in mutual respect. Nelly's dream is to have her own travel agency.
