Miriam's story

Mirian is a member of the Totorilla Communal Bank. She is 35 and has 3 children. She runs a seafood restaurant by day and a Chinese restaurant by night. She also has a tourist shop. She has been a member of FINCA Peru for three years. She remembers that with her first loan she bought a kitchen and started her business with a small table and four chairs in a location that her father gave her. She is very grateful for all the support that has been provided for her; thanks to Finca and the responsibility that they taught her, she now has all that she set out to have. She feels that she has progressed. The training and the savings help her to run her business better. Her goal is to be able to buy another plot of land and to baptize her children.
