Lucia's story

Lucia is a member of the communal bank Sonrisa. She is 44 years old and a mother of four. She has been a member of FINCA Perú for six years and she is a merchant. She sells wholesale and retail grains, which she also sells in the markets. She is proud of belonging to FINCA Perú, where she learned a lot through the trainings offered at her communal bank meetings. Thanks to them she learned good business management and parenting skills. She also learned how to distribute her money productively. She will invest the loan she is now requesting in the purchase of grains, which she will take to the markets and sell.
