A loan of $1,100 helped to buy ladies' shoes and slippers.

Valeria's story

Valeria is a member of the “Las Gaviotas” (The Seagulls) communal bank. She’s 56 years old, a widow and has four children.

Valeria sells shoes. She used to sell clothes but decided to change into selling shoes because they sell more and are more profitable.

She will use the requested loan to buy merchandise: shoes and slippers for women, men and children.

Valeria joined Finca Perú invited by a girl friend. She used what she was able to save for her children’s education; now she’s saving up to buy a piece of land.
