A loan of $925 helped to buy rice, sugar, milk, and noodles.


Teresa's story

Teresa has been a member of FINCA Peru for 13 years. She sells cochineal (a natural dye) and “tara” (a natural tannin used in making leather), but she also manages a grocery store. Teresa has always sold cochineal and “tara”, but she recalls using her savings to establish her store and to build her house. Thanks to the training she has received from her Communal Bank, Teresa has learned how to have a prosperous business. The loans have been easy to manage and the training has helped her to make her business more efficient.


Now this loan she is requesting will be used to buy rice, sugar, milk, and noodles so that she can improve her business.
