“I am a shopkeeper, widow, and mother living in the DRC (Congo). Last year, I was encouraged to follow a training in financial education given by FINCA. At first, I did not see any real value because I had a bad perception of financial institutions.
However, since I completed the training, I have changed my way of life. I now manage my expenses very well and have saved more than I used to do.
With my savings from my small business income, I am now able to feed my family, provide for other household needs, maintain a positive balance in my business and pay my children’s school fees.”
FINCA’s work to improve financial access is made possible through partnerships and donations by generous donors.
