Thanks to FINCA's support she managed to educate her children and buy herself a car. Now she also sells cosmetics from catalogs. She enjoys working with FINCA because savings are integrated into the membership fees and it is also possible to bring voluntary savings. Furthermore the training that she received in her Communal Bank has taught her about the values and principles that people should have. The loan that she is requesting will be invested in the purchase of cosmetics and she will sell them to her regular customers. Her goal is to provide her youngest daughter with the opportunity to have a professional career.
