A loan of $1,125 helped to buy chickens.


Giovanna's story

Giovanna is a member of the 'Ccori Soncco' community bank. She is 29 years old, single, and the mother of two children. She has been a member of FINCA Peru for more than two years. She feels proud because she has been able to buy her own things. She also has a store which she has stocked with rice, sugar and other products. Giovanna enjoys the training sessions because they talk about businesses, how to educate your children and other topics which help in borrowers' personal, family and business lives. Giovanna says that she also provides 'polladas' (portions of chicken) to people who request her services for events. She will invest the loan that she is requesting in buying chicken which she will prepare and then sell to her customers.
