A loan of $775 helped to buy fertilizer and seeds.


María's story

María is a member of the Buena Suerte (Good Luck) Community Bank. She is 34 years old, married, and the mother of two children. She has been a member of FINCA Peru for eight years. María grows root crops which she then sells either wholesale or retail in various markets. She also sells potatoes in the Nery García market in Ayacucho. She really enjoys attending the Community Bank meetings as she learns a lot about being responsible, about spending her money appropriately, and about bringing up her children well. Her goal is to buy some land and build a house. This loan money will be used to buy fertilizer and seeds for her farm.
