Her first loan with the Manuela Ramos Movement was for 200 new sols which she used for her retail handicrafts business. She makes wool hats, stoles, sweaters, etc which are sold in hotels. With this loan of 1000 new sols, she will buy 10 cones of wool, and five pounds of alpaca wool in different colors.
