Juliana's story

Juliana is a member of the Communal Bank "Mujeres Triunfadoras" [Triumphant Women] located in the district of Cabanilla, province of Lampa and department of Puno. She is 48 years of age, single and has no children. She finished her studies through high school.

She has been working with the Manuela Ramos Movement for four years. Her initial loan was for 300 nuevos soles which she used to increase her working capital in her cattle business. At the same time she is a dedicated knitter.

The member will seek a new loan in the amount of 1,500 nuevos soles which she will invest in the purchase of wool for knitting her sweaters, blankets and decorative table clothes for their eventual sale.

What she likes most about her Communal Bank is the interest earned on her savings.
