Carmen's story

Carmen, 32 years old, is a member of the Azucenas communal bank and lives with her two children. She has been a member of FINCA Peru for 3 years and is the owner of a stand at the market where she sells clothes. Carmen tells us that with FICA Peru, she was able to achieve her dream of having her own large clothes store. She is known by the people and now she can open more branches. She likes the training she receives at her communal bank; she learned to save and value herself as a woman. The loan she is requesting will be invested in buying clothes for her store such as pants, sweaters, polos, shirts, blouses, and jackets.
