A loan of $1,325 helped to buy clothes, stuffed animals, wallets, and accessories.


Merli Layli's story

Merli is a member of the Ccori Soncco communal bank. She is 26, single, and does not have children.

She sells women’s clothes. She now has a store, and she is proud because she is getting ahead by herself. Thanks to Finca she is getting an education at an Institute where she is studying the career of accounting. She also says that her business improved with savings and with the loan that she easily received.

Thanks to this she has purchased her cabinets and display cases. She learned to be punctual, responsible, and to get ahead by herself.

She will use the loan she is now requesting to buy clothes, stuffed animals, wallets, and accessories for Valentine’s Day.
