A loan of $725 helped to buy materials needed for the construction of rooms in her house.


Elsa Carmen's story

Elsa is a member of the communal bank Unión. She is 56 years old with 2 children, and has been working with FINCA Peru for 15 years.

Elsa rents out rooms in her 4-story house. She also sells ice and cosmetics. She remembers fondly how FINCA helped her to buy her land and little by little to build her house. She is grateful for the help she received and that they taught her to be responsible and to have higher ethics. The training taught her how to conduct and grow her business.

The loan that she is asking for will be used to add rooms to the 4th floor. Her goal is to save for her child to receive qualifications.
