Mauricia's story

Mauricia is a member of the Trinidad Communal Bank and is 54 years-old. She's a hardworking woman. From Monday to Thursday she travels to sell clothing in the markets. On Saturdays she works on her small farm and on Sundays she sells food. She learned to work well at Finca. Thanks to the loans they have given her she was able to buy herself a small farm. Now she feels very good because she can have financial stability. She was able to educate her children. She will now invest the loan in the purchase of clothing to take to the markets.
