Esperanza Group's story

Marcelina belongs to the Esperanza community bank which is beginning its 24th loan cycle with 18 members. Marcelina has been with FINCA Perú for 3 loan cycles. She likes the meetings held by her community bank because they give loans and she can save. She has learned a lot in their training sessions about family, marriage and caring for children, and she puts it all into practice in her daily life.

Marcelina is 41 years old. She is married and has 3 children. The loan which she is requesting will be invested in buying rice, sugar, noodles, eggs, flour and soda as well as other products to stock her grocery store. Her dream is for her business to grow, to buy a car and to see her children become professionals.
