A loan of $825 helped to buy piping and plaster for his business.


Jhonny's story

Jhonny is a member of the Juanito Communal Bank. He is 31 years old, has two children, and began working at a restaurant. He remembers that he used his first loan to buy supplies for his business, but it did not go well. Thanks to the advice he received on how to do business, he now has a hardware store and nothing will go wrong. With this loan, he will now buy the piping and plaster he needs. He is very grateful to Finca Perú because in being part of the communal bank, he was able to succeed faster and get back on his feet after the failure of his restaurant. He is also grateful for the trainings and everything they teach to help him improve both personally and as a micro-entrepreneur. His big goal is now to open a branch.
