Melchora's story

Melchora is a member of the Communal Bank "Buena Suerte" (Good Luck). She is 65 years old, married, and has three children. Melchora has been with FINCA Peru for 15 years. She is the owner of handicraft workshop that produces woven and embroidered goods. Melchora feels successful with everything she has accomplished as a result of her savings, which helped her provide an education for her children and pay for the construction of her home. The training classes offered by her Communal bank have taught her a great deal about working and becoming a female entrepreneur. She is grateful to FINCA for the credit services it has provided.

The loan she is requesting will be used to buy supplies, such as thread and wool, and to pay her workers.
