A loan of $950 helped to buy gas to sell in her business.


Margarita's story

Margarita is a member of the Violeta community bank. She is 61 years old, a widow and has one son. She has been a member of FINCA Peru for 16 years and is a retired teacher. She owns her own restaurant where she sells traditional Peruvian dishes. She also has a business selling gas. During her years as a FINCA Peru member, Margarita has worked hard and managed to add a second storey to her house. Her dream for the future is to build another house that she can rent out. Over all these years, what Margarita has learned the most is how to save. She will invest the loan that she is requesting in buying gas to sell in her business.
