Teresa Natividad's story

Teresa’s a member of the “Sonrisa” (Smile) communal bank. She’s 54-years-old and the mother of four children. She’s been a member of FINCA Perú for more than five years and she owns a crafts store where she does very well. She very much enjoys the training she gets in her communal bank and is grateful because they provide knowledge she can use to improve her business, her family as well as personally. Thanks to it she now knows how to save and invest well in her business. She says that other entities do no offer such training. She will use the requested loan to buy sweaters, wood altar pieces and ceramic bulls to increase the variety of products she has in her store and to stock it.
