A loan of $950 helped to purchase a computer for her internet cafe.


Paulina's story

Paulina is a member of the “Amauta Huamanga” Communal Bank, and the mother of 4 children. She has been a member of FINCA Peru for the past year. Paulina has recently opened an internet cafe business. Previously, she operated a restaurant but that didn't do well. So, now she has an “internet” and hopes that this will do better. Thanks to the training she has received, her family life has improved greatly and she values herself more as a woman. The loan Paulina requests will be invested in purchasing a computer. Now her dream is to save more and to be able to buy herself a house.
