A loan of $500 helped to buy clothes to stock her business.

Julia's story

Julia is 64 and a single mother. She is a member of the Triunfo II community bank and is requesting a loan for 1,400 Peruvian soles.

She will invest the loan that she is requesting in buying clothes to stock her business. Julia has a stall in the '12 de abril' market. She sells women's, men's and children's clothes, blankets and comforters. She buys the clothes in Lima or sometimes her son sends them to her.

Julia has been with FINCA Peru for many years, since the times when they still worked in dollars because of difficulties with the exchange rate. However, things are now more stable because they work in Peruvian soles.

Julia's life has changed a lot since she has been working with Finca Peru because values are widely promoted and practised. Her dream is to continue working while God grants her the strength. She is currently saving for her old age.
