A loan of $575 helped to buy brick-making supplies.

Elena's story

Elena belongs to the “Kausachun” communal bank. She’s 32-years-old, married and mother of three boys. She’s been a member of FINCA Perú for ten years and works manufacturing bricks. In her time as a FINCA Perú member, Elena has learned the importance of savings and punctuality. Her dream for the future is that her children make progress and are able to attain larger accomplishments than she has. Her goal is to buy a piece of land on which to build a house for her family and to own a store. She will use the loan to invest in her business; she will buy materials and supplies needed to manufacture bricks to sell.
