A loan of $575 helped to buy clothing and groceries.

Victoria's story

Victoria is a member of the Alborada communal bank. She is 49 years old and the mother of 4 children. She is a single mother; since her husband left, she has tried to get ahead by herself. She reports that without the help of FINCA, she would not have been able to do so, and she is very grateful. For Victoria, FINCA Peru is more than an entity that provides loans; for her they are like her family. In this way she has been able to get ahead, trying to do everything she can. Her business is traveling to the markets with clothing and shoes. On Sundays, she sells food from her home. Now she feels that her business has grown, and now with the loan she has requested she will invest in buying clothing and groceries.
