Julia's story

Julia is a member of the Los Tunales communal bank. She's 49 years old and has been a member of FINCA Peru for over three years. She has a live-in partner and six children, five of which are under her care. She sells cereals and came to FINCA because she was invited by a member and friend. She likes the training programs because they teach her to how be responsible and they have also taught her how to raise her children. Thanks to that, her children have gone to college. She gives thanks to FINCA Peru because her business has improved. She now takes her goods to Chincha and Ica, and because of that, her daughters are also members of the same small bank. The loan she requests will be invested in her business by purchasing more cereals such as corn, amaranth, linseed and quinoa.
