Martha's story

Martha O. Velásquez belongs to the “Mujeres Talentosas” community bank. Her business is located at Jr. Salaverry Nº 597 in the Calleria district. She is 47; her husband is a body building instructor. They have one minor child; the other two are already professionals.

She has been a member of Manuela Ramos for 5 years. With her first loan of 300 PEN she improved the security on the premises where she sells liquor and soft drinks.

With a loan of 3,000 PEN she will improve the infrastructure of her establishment. She will also buy all brands of drinks.

She says, “I like the way Manuela Ramos works: the system they have, the order, and the orientations they give. I have put into practice some of the advice; that helped me improve my business.”
