A loan of $950 helped to purchase clothing.


Maria Teresa's story

Maria is a member of the Tarpuy Communal Bank. She is 65 years old and the mother of nine children. She sells clothing, which she takes to the rainforest region. She has been a member of Finca Perú for ten years. The experience that she has gained in Finca has helped her to raise her children well and to make her business profitable so that she can sustain her home. Maria is very grateful to Finca for the training and assistance that they give to low-income women. Although she was failing at one time, she kept going. She will use the loan she is requesting to purchase seasonal clothing.
