Virginia's story

Virginia is a member of the Atinchik Communal Bank. She is a single mother with one daughter and has been a member of FINCA Perú for 3 years. She sells clothing and thanks to FINCA she has improved her business. Now she sells wholesale and was able to move her daughter ahead. She is proud because her daughter is attending the university.

Virginia also expanded her inventory of goods and takes them to sell at street markets, where she distributes them wholesale. She enjoys the meetings of her bank because they help her make improvements in her business and in her family since she puts what she learns into practice. She will invest the loan she is requesting in a trip to Lima where she will buy more merchandise such as uniforms, school supplies and other items to take to the street markets to sell.
