A loan of $1,025 helped to buy a moto-car.


Maria Angelica's story

Maria is a member of the communal bank "Paz y Desarrollo" (Peace and Development). Maria is married, is 38 years old and has 3 children, ages 18, 17 and 12. The 18-year-old is a university student and the 17 year-old and 12-year-old are students at public schools. Maria studied midwifery for a year. To start her business she purchased a gas oven and began making pastries and she started selling them in bulk to stores in her neighborhood. Her pastries were also sent to stores in outlying areas and to family members and friends that she has in the United States. Since Maria has been in Finca she has really liked the way that they have to help people manage their money well and to motivated them to not be fearful to start a business or to ask for a loan. Maria needs a loan of $1025 (3,000 Soles) to be able to buy a moto-car. Maria's dream is to start a soda shop in her home.
