Carmen's story

Carmen is a member of Inti community bank. She is 30 years old and has two children. She has belonged to Kiva partner FINCA Peru for the past two years. Carmen has an auto body and painting shop. Previously she worked as a secretary for a travel agency in central Ayacucho. Carmen really enjoys her meetings with her community bank because she learns a lot about training. She appreciates everything because her shop and everything she has, like her cars, she bought with her savings and the loans she has received. Her dream is to set up her business and purchase better machinery for her shop.
