Peter Luis's story

Peter is a member of the communal bank “Mujeres del Dos Mil.” He lives with his partner, is 41 years old, and has three children (ages 12, 9, and 4), who all study in the state school.

Peter studied accounting, but has not worked as an accountant because he wasn’t able to find any work. Therefore, he tried to get work wherever he could find it. For ten years, he has been working part-time at an agency that sends and receives money. In the afternoons, he works selling and buying dollars.

Peter needs a loan of 1,600 soles so he can buy dollars for his business. As a member of Finca Peter has received business training.

Peter dreams of having a currency exchange.
