Maravilla Group's story

The Maravilla Communal Bank has 14 members and is starting its fifth loan cycle. Victoria is 33 years old. She is a single mother with a 4 year old and a 9 month old baby. Prior to their separation, she and her partner owned a seafood restaurant. She decided to open her own seafood restaurant at her home and it’s going well. Little by little, people are beginning to visit her establishment. She serves meals Monday through Sunday but the weekends are the most crowded. Victoria is requesting the loan to pay for tables, courier service, rugs, etc. to equip her establishment. She is pleased to have been a member of Finca for the past year because they provide her with the opportunity to obtain a loan when she needs it. She learns a lot from the training she receives from her sponsor. Victoria’s dream is that her business becomes recognized in Ayacucho and to educate her children.

In this group: Victoria, Gudelia, Ana Maria, Gloria, Laura Giovanna, Karina Vanessa, Cenia, Hilario Victor, Ayde, Raul Hector, Gloria, Pilar, Saturnina, Vanessa Cintia
