A loan of $750 helped to buy groceries for her store so that she can further increase her profits.


Paulina's story

Paulina is a member of the Orcasitas II community bank. She is 46 years old, married, and the mother of two children. She has been a member of FINCA Peru for 10 years and owns a grocery store. She likes being a member of her community bank because she enjoys herself and shares experiences with her fellow group members. Above all, she learns a lot from the training that she receives there. She comments that they are life lessons, above all if you put them into practice. Thanks to FINCA's loans, she has been able to finish building her home and increase her business. Her goal, in common with that of all mothers, is to provide her children with a college education. She will invest the loan that she is requesting in buying groceries for her store so that she can further increase her profits.
