Viviana's story

Viviana is a member of the “Inti” communal bank. She’s 37 years old and has four children. She sells charcoal briquettes, chickens and potatoes in the jungle. Viviana has been a member of FINCA Perú for the last three years. The loan she’s requesting will be invested in her business because the feast day of Saint Rose is approaching and demand rises.

She gives thanks for the loans received. Her children are the most important thing to her. She’s managed to educate them in good schools and she has the satisfaction that her eldest has enrolled in the San Cristóbal University in Huamanga.

She likes the communal bank meetings because they teach her how to save and to invest well in her business. Now, her goal is to buy a car.
