A loan of $1,125 helped to pay for her daughter's tuition.

Carmen Eddy's story

Carmen is a member of the “Bienestar” communal bank. She provides transportation services and has three vans. She’s been involved with FINCA for 12 years.

After an accident, she was very discouraged and her friend invited her into FINCA. It’s been 12 years and she has not left. She is very grateful for all the support they gave her when she most needed it. With great effort, she was able to buy two cars and now she works with them and was able to create good financial stability.

She’s made good friends in the bank. She only has one daughter; the rest of her children are boys. With FINACA’s help, she was able to pay for her daughter’s education. She will use the money from this loan to pay for her daughter’s title.
