Paulina's story

Paulina is a member of the Communal Bank Agua Viva, she is 40 years old, married, and has 6 children. She dedicates herself to planting and selling flowers and vegetables. The loan that she requests will be invested in the purchase of seeds for planting. Paulina plants flowers and vegetables in Uchuypampa and sells them wholesale to neighborhood stores. On Sundays she sells at the las Américas Market.

She has been with FINCA Perú for 2 years after being invited to join by the loan officer. She likes FINCA Perú because it facilitates loans so that she can work and save; with her savings she has bought household items. Her dream is that her business continues to prosper and that her children become professionals.
