Mrs Amelia is a member of Las Orquideas Community Bank, located at Jr. Lieutenant Clavero 149, Calleri District, Ucayali Province. She is 57, widowed and has six children.

With the first loan she received from Manuela Ramos for approximately $110, Amelia opened a small sewing and alterations workshop, as a result of which she has improved her life. After her domestic chores in the mornings, Amelia works in her workshop in the afternoons on her customers’ orders.

With this loan, repayable over four months, she plans to purchase: quantities of textile and fabrics, threads of different colors, elasticated materials, zippers, buttons, etc., as it is very important to her to feel more independent, making her happier and more secure within herself.
