Cristina's story

Cristina is a member of Ñahui Yana Community Bank. She is a 56 year old widow with 11 children.

The requested loan would be used to buy groceries, vegetables and meats for food preparation, as Cristina has a restaurant in San Juan Bautista. Previously, she worked selling cheese and decided to open a restaurant, working with the help of her children, in her spare time, she began serving breakfast and lunch.

She likes the loan services of FINCA Peru for the easy loan process and that it provides her with the ability to save.
With her savings she could build a house and educate her children.

She would also open a restaurant in Carmen Alto district and only serve soups and chinese food in the evenings.
Her dream is to continue growing and that her children become professionals.
