Yaneth's story

Ms. Yaneth M. is a member of the “Micaela Bastidas” Microfinance Institute in the Ilave district of the Callao province, department of Puno. She is a 28-year-old single woman who lives with her mother. She has completed her post-secondary education.

She has been working with the Manuela Ramos Movement for 3 years. Her first loan was in the amount of 300.00 PEN, which she invested in purchasing and selling baby clothes.

She currently needs a loan for an additional 1,000.00 PEN, which will allow her to obtain more merchandise (baby clothes) and restock her sales stand. She purchases the merchandise in Juliaca and Desaguadero, then sells it in Ilave on a daily basis.

Her biggest dream is to see her business grow even more, to have a wide selection of merchandise, and never to lack anything.

What she likes about her microfinance institute’s meetings is her group members’ punctuality and the savings. She does not like the training.
