A loan of $775 helped to buy vehicle lubricants.


Teresa's story

Teresa’s a member of the “Rubí” (Ruby) communal bank. She’s 54-years-old, a widow and mother of five children. She’s been a member of FINCA Perú for more than ten years. She has a store where she sells vehicle lubricants.

In the time she’s been a member of the institution she learned to save and taught all her children to do so too. Now, she feels satisfied for all she’s accomplished. She enjoys attending meetings of her communal bank and she says that she’s punctual and responsible thanks to the training she gets there that she thinks is very important both for her business and for her family. She will use the loan she’s requesting to buy lubricants for vehicle motors like ‘hidrolina,’ among others.
