A loan of $575 helped to buy ingredients such as rice, sugar, oil, vegetables and meat which she needs for preparing the food that she sells.


Gloria's story

Gloria is a member of the Llapanchik community bank. She is 37 years old, married, and has two daughters. She has been a member of FINCA Peru for six months and her business is selling food. She says that being a member of FINCA Peru has been a good experience because they gave her a loan when she most needed it, enabling her to start a business. They have also taught her to save which is what she likes the most. Gloria's dreams are to make progress alongside her family and to make some improvements to her home. Above all, she would like to provide her daughters with a college education. She will invest the loan that she has requested in buying ingredients such as rice, sugar, oil, vegetables and meat that she needs for preparing the food that she sells.
