A loan of $600 helped to buy fabric for making bedsheets.

Maria Justina's story

Maria is a member of The Flowers cooperative bank.

Maria is a single mother, 64 years old, and has 8 children who are now grown and married.

Many years ago, Maria dedicated herself to making bedsheets that she sells to her neighbors. On weekends, she sells anticuchos and parrilladas (typical foods of the region).

Since has been with Finca, she has learned how to be responsible. She very much enjoys the meetings of the community bank because she has a chance to spend time with her friends.

Maria needs a loan of 1,800 soles, for the fabric to make her sheets.

Maria’s dream is to open a store in her house, and she is working on it.
