A loan of $375 helped to purchase materials for her bookstore.


Esther Estela's story

Esther is a member of the Atinchik community bank and has been a member of FINCA Peru for 11 years. She used to work at a market stall, but thanks to the loans that she has received, she has a photocopier. She feels very good about everything she has accomplished, because she could purchase land and build a house. Now, she is very happy and calm.

She will use the loan money to improve her small bookstore. She says that the trainings have helped her a lot and taught her how to save, which has produced everything she has today.
