Jackeline's story

Jackeline is a member of the "Medalla Milagrosa" community bank.

Jackeline is married, 21 years old and has two children aged four and one who are both in nursery school.

Jackeline is the youngest of four children but she never lived with her siblings because her parents separated and she lived with her grandmother who raised her until she was 18, at which time she fell in love and went to live with her husband at her in-laws. Her brothers live outside the country and send her money which she used to open an internet cafe. She has new computers at her in-laws and her husband's job is fixing computers.

Since joining Finca she has learned from the other members how to make efforts to improve in business and how to be responsible with repayments.

She needs a loan of 1,000 soles in order to open a mini-bookstore in her internet cafe: she needs to buy a display cabinet, paper, folders, pens.

Jackeline's dream is to study graphic design and have her own place of business.
