View original language description ↓
Mrs Rose belongs to the Community Bank “New Eden” located at Virgen D. Lourdes Mz street Lot number 6 in the district of Yarina Cocha, department of Ucayali.
She is 47 years old, has 4 children under 18, is married and her husband is a motorcycle rickshaws driver.


She already received a first loan of 300 soles (100 USD) from the association Manuela Ramos which she invested buying wood that she later sold for a profit.



She has continued selling wood of all types and sizes. She wakes up everyday at 5am to go to the sawmill, where she meets her clients.


With the loan of 1800 soles (625 USD), that she will pay in 5 months, she will buy different types of wood as cedar and other Latin American tropical species (like capirona, shihuahuaco, zapotillo and quillobordon).


Rose feels good about the business; she is economically independent and has a stable situation. She can manage her income without depending on anyone. All thanks to the first loan she got from Manuela Ramos and its staff that advised her well.
