A loan of $950 helped to buy backpacks and school supplies.

Aidé's story

Aidé is a member of the Communal Bank Los Claveles. She is 39 years old. She is a mother to 4 children, 2 of whom are in university and the others are minors. She has been a member of FINCA Perú for more than 14 years. She is married. She sells groceries, school supplies and gas for a living. Thanks to the loans that she has received she has improved herself. The training has helped her to solve her problems, for example the accident that her husband had - she helped him to get better and he is now coming out on top. Now her eldest son has entered the NCO school.

She says that if it weren't for the loans that she received, and if she had not saved up, her son would not have had the opportunity to become a professional and she would not have been able to support her family when her husband was unwell. Being a part of Finca Perú has helped her to make her house into a place that she would like to rent out for events. The loan that she is requesting will be invested in the purchase of backpacks and school supplies, since it is back to school time again.
