Romelia
View original language description ↓
Romelia belongs to the communal bank “Sol Naciente”, located in the Calleria district in Ucayali. She is 61 years old and has three children, however her income is not enough to meet her financial needs. It’s for this reason that Romelia, with her first loan of S/. 300 from Manuela Ramos, decided to invest in a small business selling food.



She currently runs the business at night, rising at 7 am to prepare her breakfast and from then on dedicate herself to preparing her food which she sells from 5 pm until 10 pm.



With this loan of S/. 2,500, to be repaid over a period of four months, she bought rice, oil, sodas, condiments, poultry, fish, etc.



Romelia is very happy and her business is growing little by little, and her sales are also are increasing. All the effort she puts forth is to support her family and to demonstrate for other women that they too can work and be successful businesswomen.
