Meribeth Diana's story

Meribeth is a member of the Wiñarisun community bank. She is 24 years old and married. She has a 4 year-old child and is expecting a baby. Meribeth is a trader who sells men's, women's and children's clothes. She takes her products to sell in San Francisco and surrounding areas. She learned this business from her sisters who sell clothes in the market in San Miguel, Tambo and are also members of Finca.

Meribeth is teaching herself by selling her products in the markets. She likes Finca for the loans that they provide and the fact that she can save. She learns a lot in the training sessions about family, business and women's rights.

Meribeth's dream is to be able to finish her studies, for her business to grow and to be able to educate her children.
