Hilda's story

Hilda is a member of the communal bank Las Gaviotas (The Seagulls). She is 30 years old, has a live-in partner, and is the mother of 3 children. She has been a member of FINCA Perú for 6 months. She is a teacher in a primary school and has a business where she sells clothes. She says that FINCA Perú has helped her to learn the importance of saving and investing in her own business. Her dream for the future is that her children will be professionals, and to build a house so she can live with her family. The loan that she is requesting will be used to purchase clothing for men, women, and children.
