Faustina's story

Faustina is a member of the Communal Bank Retoño. She is 43 years old, married, and has 3 children who are 24, 23, and 20. She sells grains and potatoes. She is requesting the loan to buy wheat, barley, corn, potato, peas, beans, etc.
Faustina has a car and accompanies her husband transporting passengers to fairs. That is how she began buying potatoes and some grains to use. Some of her relatives and neighbors started to take orders and she started selling. Now she distributes the grains she buys at the fairs in markets located in Grau Beach, Nery García Zárate, and Magdalena.
She likes the communal bank meetings because she has learned to save, be responsible, and punctual. Her dream is for her children to finish studying and finish their home.
