A loan of $575 helped to buy thinner, plywood, and nails for her carpentry.

Graciela's story

Graciela is a member of the Gotitas de Amor (Little Drops of Love) communal bank, is 37 years old, and has been a member of FINCA Peru for two years. She is a mother of three children and makes a living by selling cosmetics.

She says that her brothers have a carpentry business, and she now wishes to use her loan to buy thinner, plywood, and nails for carpentry. Now she wants to make a living with this business because it is more profitable and she has the confidence that she will do it very well.

She is eager to work because in the time she has been with FINCA Peru she could learn many things that she is now putting into practice thanks to the training from her communal bank.
