A loan of $750 helped to buy firewood, rice, sugar, and oil.


Donata's story

Donata is a member of Paloma Communal Bank. She works selling food, and a little while ago she opened a store for fertilizer, manure, and crop treatments. She has been a member of Finca Perú for ten years. She remembers that with the loans she received she was able to buy her electrical appliances. Donata is very well because the loans she receives give her the stability and peace that nobody gives her. She was able to learn a lot about her business and family from the trainings from her communal bank. She will invest the loan she is requesting in buying firewood, rice, sugar, and oil.
