A loan of $1,500 helped to purchase guinea pigs..


Francisco's story

Francisco is a member of the Communal Bank "El Trebol" (The Clover). He is 52 years old and has seven children who live with him. Francisco has been with FINCA Peru for more than a year. He raises guinea pigs, but he also works for an ice cream company.

Thanks to FINCA Peru, Francisco was able to grow his guinea pig business. He also learned how to save and better manage his money. He enjoys the Communal Bank meetings because of the seminars that have helped to educate his children. Francisco will invest his new loan in the purchase of more female guinea pigs.
