Yulissa is a member of the “Paraíso” (Paradise) communal bank. She’s 34 years old and asked for the loan to invest in her “Recreo” (a place in the countryside for events). She’s been a FINCA Perú member for two years and reminds us that she used to sell food at home but now she bought a piece of land and her goal is to be able to build on it to have a more adequate installation for her recreo and for events. She thanks Finca for all they’ve taught her in her communal bank.
