Rosa's story

Mrs. Rosa E. R. is 39 years old and belongs to the Good Shepherd Community Bank. She lives in the village of Lluín in the district of Mache, Otuzco province, Department of La Libertad.

She completed primary school, but did not continue her studies due to lack of support from her family. She married at age twenty and has six children, two boys and four girls. She works in the purchase and sale of grains and also, recently, in the lumber business.

With her first loan of 300 soles, which she repaid in four installments, she purchased cereals such as wheat, barley, peas, and lentils. With this loan of 1000 soles, which she will repay in six installments, she will buy cereals at wholesale, and invest in the purchase of lumber.

Rosa is very grateful for the loans received from Manuela Ramos.
