A loan of $775 helped to repaint the rooms she rents.


Elsa Carmen's story

Elsa Carmen is a member of the “Unión II” communal bank. She’s 52-years-old, widowed and the mother of two children. She’s been a member of FINCA Perú for 17 years and she sells blocks of ice and rents rooms in her house. She says that FINCA Perú taught her how to save, manage her business and how to be more responsible. She enjoys the training very much because she gets along very well with her fellow group members and she feels happy. She will use the loan she’s requesting to repaint the rooms she rents in her house.
