A loan of $850 helped to buy a dozen comforters.

Zoila's story

Zoila is a member of the communal bank "Jadat." She 53 years old, separated and has three grown children. Zoila worked in a business cooking, because she likes to cook, but left due to an illness. She now sells bedding, comforters and sheets. She has received a lot of help from FINCA; the loans are necessary to her business as all she receives is invested in merchandise, and she can buy more bedding items. Zoila currently needs a loan of 2400 soles to buy a dozen comforters. Zoila dreams of having a stall where she can sell her merchandise and of continuing to sell because she enjoys working.
