A loan of $1,125 helped to buy sugar, rice and milk.

Francisca Elena's story

Francisca is a member of the Paloma community bank. She has a grocery store and is the mother of five children. She is a registered nurse. She has always had her grocery store and used to run it together with her husband until she started to travel and then only her husband would run it. When she started with Finca Peru her husband was dead set against the idea. He would never give her money so that she could save. Over time, she realized that Finca helped her a lot with their loans and now she and her husband establish goals that they can accomplish with the savings they have with Finca. Francisca gives thanks for all the support that she has been given. The training sessions helped her to improve her relationship with her husband. She is doing very well with her business and she will invest her current loan in buying sugar, rice and milk.
