A loan of $575 helped to buy building supplies.

María Rocio's story

María’s a member of the “Solución” communal bank. She’s 37-years-old, married and the mother of a son. She’s been a member of FINCA Perú for ten years and she owns a store where she sells juice; she also has a business where she sells building materials and supplies.

She says that in all this time as a member of FINCA Perú she’s learned how to save and thanks to this was able to buy her piece of land. She likes the training sessions her communal bank’s advisor has where she learns much about income and expenses that a person handles and how to budget her profits well. She also learned much on a personal level.

She will use the requested loan to buy building materials and supplies like sand, cement, bricks and others for her business.
