Florencia is a member of the Communal Bank "Great Power", located in the district of Ilave, in the province of El Collao, and the department of Puno. She is 55 years old, and married with six children. She has no formal education.
Florencia has been working with Manuela Ramos for three years. Her first loan was for the amount of 300 PEN, and she used the money to expand the merchandise in her business selling spare parts.
She is now asking for a loan of 3,000 PEN, money which she will use to increase the capital of her business.
Her dream for the future is to be a wholesaler in her business and to buy herself a car.
Her favorite two things about working with the Communal Bank are the punctuality and the educational sessions.
