Modesta's story

Modesta is a member of the Nueva Vida Communal Bank. She has been in a common law union for 23 years and has five children, ages 22 through three years old.

She has worked in the Basilio Auqui market for ten years where she sells banana, yuca, nony and carambola wholesale. Her main problem arises when the fruit goes bad due to slow sales. Modesta is happy to be a member of Finca Perú because she feels she has gained empowerment and can continue learning more and more. Modesta's dream is to provide professional training for her children and to increase her capital in order to acquire more products.
