A loan of $750 helped to complete a room in her house to be rented.


Elsa Carmen's story

Elsa is a member of the "Union II" Communal Bank, and has been associated with Fina for some 16 years. She owns a 4-story house and rents out rooms. Elsa was able to construct her house with the help of loans she has received. She also sells beauty products.

Elsa is enchanted with Finca's training sessions because they help her overcome the difficulties she has with her illness. She suffers from degenerative osteoarthritis. Elsa is very content because now she can be a better person in her home and in her business. All her achievements have been thanks to the aid of Finca.

Now, with this loan, she will invest in improving one of her rental rooms.
