Nelva Florencia's story

Nelva is a member of the communal bank "El sembrador". She is 43, married, with two children 20 and 22, both working and studying. Nelva always works selling many various things, but now she sells cheese, distributing it to the homes of her neighbors. During the week she also works cleaning house 3 times per week. She sells soft drinks and beer from her home. Since she has been in FINCA, she has learned how to organize her business and how to administrate it, and her sales have grown. She enjoys the communal bank meetings, they are very family-like and pleasant.

Nelva needs a loan of US$275 to buy beer, soft drinks, and cheese. Her dream is to increase her capital in order to have a shop and to open a garage on some land that she has.
