View original language description ↓
Mrs. Soraida belongs to the communal bank Luchando por Nosotras (fighting for ourselves). She lives in the Jr. Adolfo Morey 644, in the Calleria district, Ucayali department. She is 35 years old and has four children whom she adores and who still depend on her. Her husband is an insurance agent in a commercial store. Thanks to the first loan she received from Manuela Ramos for S/. 300 (US$ 100.00) she decided to invest in a small general store.


Currently, she has a well-stocked general store in her own home, in which every day, after taking her children to school, she tends to her business. Her store is busy and frequented by her neighbors because she offers good quality products at good prices.


With the loan recently received from Manuela Ramos for S/. 1,000 (US$ 335.00 approx.), which will be repaid in 6 months, she will buy 1 sack of rice, 1 box of milk, 1 box of oil, 3 boxes of soda, produce, etc.


Soraida tells us that Manuela Ramos is a support for her and her family, and that she feels good, accomplished, more independent and responsible. She tells us that her daughter (who is sick) is her main motivation to succeed.
