Mirtha Teresa's story

Mirtha is a member of the United Friends village bank. She is 44 years-old, married, and has two children who are 18 and 15 years-old. The eldest child studies at an institute while the youngest studies at the public school. Mirtha began working in a retail shop as a salesperson. She worked there for many years but had to quit that job because her mother, who was caring for her children, got cancer and passed away. Shortly after, she started working out of her house, selling groceries like rice, sugar, milk, noodles in a cart. Her business grew until she was able to convert part of her house into a convenience store. Since joining FINCA, her business has improved and she has a variety of merchandise. Mirtha needs a loan of 2000 soles to buy rice, sugar, detergent, and cases of beer. Her dream is to sell beer wholesale.
