A loan of $1,150 helped to buy fabric and folk-art.


Florinda's story

Florinda is a member of the Imperial Community Bank. She is 58 years old, married and the mother of nine children. She has been a member FINCA Perú for the past ten years. She is the owner of a store that sells folk-art. She is proud of all that she has accomplished as a member of FINCA Perú because she has learned how to save money and progress with her family and also in her business. She likes to attend the community bank meetings as each time she goes she brings back home information that she shares with her children. The loan that she is requesting will be used to buy fabric that she will bring to other countries to sell and also she will use it to make plain and tiered skirts to sell as part of her folk-art offerings.
