Hatun Finca Group's story

The community bank Hatún Finca are beginning their first loan cycle with 17 members, many of whom are neighbours.

Alejandrina is the president of the community bank. She lives with her husband and has a 6 year old daughter who is studying first graD. at primary school. What Alejandrina likes most about the methodology of Finca Peru is its incentives to save money.

Alejandrina travels to the markets three times a week where she sells various types of fruit, products that she purchases in the wholesale market of Ayacucho. At the markets she buys wheat, barley and other cereals which she later sells at the city markets in Ayacucho. Her loan will be used to buy bananas, apples and mandarins.

Alejandrina dreams of setting up a stall in her house so that she can stop travelling, and she hopes that her daughter will grow up to be a professional.

In this group: Alejandrina Irma, Kattia, Lourdes Fany, Maria Elena, Delia, Hilda, Vilma Nancy, Cirila, Ayde Rosaria, Jenny Jet, Telba, Enma Carmela, Roberto, Gloria, Andres, Liz Mayra, Eder
