Maria Teresa's story

María is a member of the Banco Comunal Tarpuy II. She is sixty-five years old, married, and the mother of nine children, all of whom have achieved their majority. She has been a member of Finca Perú for more than ten years and makes a living selling clothing that she takes to markets outside the city. She is grateful for the opportunities that the organization has brought her, allowing her to grow more in her business.

She likes the training that she receives in the Banco Comunal because the advice and conversations that it provides help her to improve both personally and economically. She will use the loan that she is currently requesting to buy merchandise (such as clothing for men, women, and children) for her business, which she will sell in the markets.
