Juana's story

Juana is a member of the “Manos Maravillosas” (Marvelous Hands) Communal Bank in Calleria district, Ucayali department. She is 42 years old and a single mother with 4 children. For 2 years she has been working with loans through Manuela R., money that has served to pay for her eldest son's studies for a technical career. He still receives some help from her, and Juana has 2 other small children to educate. She has to continue working so that her children will have what they need. With this new loan of 1,500 new sols, Juana will have the motor of her motorcycle-taxi repaired, since it doesn't work adequately and has shown signs of mechanical failure. Juana says “Thanks to Manuela R. I have been able to maintain my business and offer my children education.”
