Rufina's story

Rufina, 68, is a member of the “Cusi Urpi” communal bank. She’s a widow. She’s been a member of Finca Perú for the last four years and she sells fruit, vegetables, bread and groceries.

During all this time working with Finca Perú, Rufina has learned the importance of saving and to be responsible.

Her dream for the future is to make progress alongside her three children who are still in school.

She will use the loan she’s requesting to buy merchandise to sell like fruit, vegetables, rice, milk and sugar.
