Maria Luisa
Maria is a member of the Santa Rosa de Villa Community Bank. She is a single mother, 52 years old, and has four grown children. Maria began bringing home-cooked food to different buildings, until the opportunity arose to work in a big business in the cafeteria. She was there for many years, and in the afternoons she worked selling from her sandwich cart. Since joining Finca, Maria learned to save, to be punctual in her payments, and has learned she needs to invest to be able to buy a refrigerator. The Community Bank meetings are very familiar. Maria needs a loan of 1000 soles to begin a new business selling chicken soup. Maria's dream is to have her own restaurant selling chicken soup.
