A loan of $1,025 helped purchase beauty products.


Maria's story

Maria is a member of the Communal Bank Mi Buen Pastor (My Good Shepherd). She is 55 years and has 5 adult children who are working.

Maria began selling chickens twenty years ago when a neighbor had a vending post available for rent in the market. She enjoys working every day to keep her business going. Her brother-in-law urged her to start selling mineral water wholesale since he has several contacts. Maria sold her house and is also selling beauty products by catalog. She is a director who supervises a group of saleswomen.

Since joining FINCA, Maria has found a great deal of support by taking advantage of its credit services. She needs a loan of 3000 soles to purchase beauty products. Maria dreams of having a large poultry farm and starting an events business.
