Ermelinda's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy three dozen uniforms, t-shirts, school socks, skirts, shirts and blouses.
Ermelinda is a member of the 'Corazones Unidos' community bank which is located in Desaguadero district, in Chucuito province, in Puno department. She is 29 years old, married, and has two children who are in school. Ermelinda completed her secondary education. Ermelinda has been working with Manuela Ramos for two years. Her first loan was for 500 soles and she invested that money in her business selling clothing. She currently needs a new loan for 2,000 soles which she will use to buy three dozen uniforms, t-shirts, school socks, school trousers, skirts, shirts and blouses. She will buy her merchandise in the town of Juliaca. Ermelinda's dream for the future is to have more capital so that she can improve her business. What she most likes about her community bank is sharing and talking with her fellow members and the responsibility.
